It's King Day in The Netherlands!
Dutchies Bouwe Bekking and Carlo Huisman celebrate Netherland's King Day onboard team Brunel
A message from Bouwe -
A very important day for us Dutchies, it is Kingsday. Back home it is a huge celebration and one big party through the entire country. Days like this are bonding our nation, all dressed in orange, our national colour. And of course standing in the limelight is our fantastic royal family. Yes, I am proud to be a Dutchman. So we celebrate a bit here onboard as well togehter with Carlo and even Alby wants to be part of it, digging out an orange shirt he had in his bag. And of course we celbrated our King , with big three cheers for him.
I know I may be a bit biased with my support for the royal family. After having raced for many years with King Juan Carlos and Crownprince Fredrik, I know how important people like them are for uor sport. Also our own royal family they love sailing, who doesn't know Sail Amsterdam, where they are always present with their own Dutch classic yacht.
So happy kingsday to everybody back home!
