During the Belgian Boat Show in Gent, a competition was held to win a free berth for a year. Just like at the HISWA te Water, visitors could enter during the show at the stand, or visit our website and enter online. From all the entries, the Geinaert Family from De Pinte in Belgium were the winners.
Still shocked at winning the prize, the happy couple visited the marina office last Thursday 27th March to receive their prize. In traditional Brabant style, the couple were treated to warm sausage rolls and a cup of coffee.
Henk de Beer, the newly appointed Director of the marina, was pleased to be able to hand the prize personally to the couple, who have been enjoying the Dutch waterways on their boat for many years.
"We have sailed a lot on the Amer and in the Biesbosch, but have never been to Jachthaven Biesbosch. We are currently having maintenance work done on our boat. Once she is ready, we plan to sail to Drimmelen."
This summer, you will no doubt meet the Geirnaert family on the pontoons . We would like to wish them a great boating season!
