European Region members Juergen and Marina Huettel have been awarded a Chairman’s Letter of Commendation.
Juergen and Marina were put forward for the award by Technical Coordinator Keith Rowe and European Region Coordinator Don Walker, in recognition of the success of their You Tube blog ‘Boater on Tour’ (https://www.youtube.com/c/boaterontour). The videos relate to their cruising experiences throughout the Netherlands on board their Broom 41 ‘Maxi 2’. They cruise throughout the year, often accompanied by BOC members Peter & Petra Stoffel on board their Broom 39, ‘ Wave Runner’. Juergen and Marina’s videos are full of information about cruising in The Netherlands, routes to various marinas and what to expect when you get there, and they show off the versatility and suitability of Broom boats for long distance cruising. Videos about the upgrades and improvements carried out on ‘Maxi 2’ are also included, showing the work involved and how to do it, together with the end result – all of which can be very helpful to BOC members and cruising boaters in general.
Congratulations to Juergen and Marina for the effort they put in to producing the videos and this very well deserved award.

May I take this opportunity to wish all our members a Happy Christmas and a Merry New Year and still live in hope that we will be able to look forward to a full season of boating next year.
I would also like to take the opportunity of announcing that David Evans has been co-opted to the post of Treasurer, with a maximum tenure of two years. Welcome to the job, David. Therefore we will be continuing, during 2022, to find a willing volunteer for this post with a view to either taking over from David at the 2022 AGM or in a position to shadow him during 2023.
Finally, the Web Site Sub Committee are hopeful that we will be launching our new web site early in the New Year, which should give something else to look forward to.
