Ton Jaspers (“Swiebertje”)
Sadly Ton passed away on December 9th after a very short illness. Ton will be sadly missed by his long time best friend and loving wife Conny (Steennis) and their daughter Anne Lotte and so many other family and friends. I believe he will forever be remembered by so many in the wider Wayfarer family as a very passionate man, a technically astute man and a big bear of a man who loved sailing and Wayfaring in particular.
Ton was particularly generous in spirit and practicality, lending not just his knowledge and expertise to others but also welcoming visitors and lending his lovely boat W10445 Swiebertje to many who travelled to the Netherlands from abroad to participate in international events held there.
Ton Jaspers our fellow Wayfarer sailor and friend may you rest in peace.
With much respect and kind regard,
Monica Schaefer – W11152 Lakka

Calshot Cruise 16-17th September
DASH, SPLASH & BACK!
“Yet another entertaining weekend thanks to John Norman, a rogue thunder cloud and some errant wake from an unseen vessel.
Very calm trip to Newtown, but this cloud was building on the way back but I hadn’t see the flash of lightning. Then an almighty thunder clap – shook me witless for a moment or two! That was it – no more storm!
Then on the slipway back at Calshot, while I was off fetching the launch trolley the wake from nowhere threw the boat against Adrian, knocking him off his feet into the water. Quick thinking from the others on the slipway prevented any injury or damage to the boat.
Thanks to everyone. Next trip around the island?
DASH, SPLASH & BACK…. dash from all corners of the country, quick sail then back home.”

… and here’s another participant’s feedback:-
“A most enjoyable weekend organised by John and Matt. Unusually the weather was kind with plenty of sun, almost enough wind and no rain!”
-Nick Giles W9922
