F-boats in Europe - A letter from Niels Tempel

Dear Ian,

Here are a few photo's taken this summer in Istrie/Croatia. The first two were published in bi-monthly newsletter of the Dutch Catamaran and Trimaran Club (CTC) under the title: four ships, twelve hulls and 25.75 meter b.o.a. From left to right: the F-9R's: "Milango" from Chiel Verhoeff and Marjanne Baard, "Zoef" from Harry Bouma and Grietha de Boer, ">20+" from Frits Du Bois and our F-82R "Trojka" (Niels Tempel and Bertha Kuijer).

As I have told you; we like the F-82R; she sails much better, sails faster and can takes the waves at sea better then the F-24MKII. She seems not as fast as the F-9R's. We like the size of the ship.

Regards

Niels Tempel
