The last three weeks of May I did a lot of nice sailing on the waters of the south-west part of Holland and the North Sea. All the repairs and new additions worked well. It was fun learning to understand everything. I tried anchoring for the evening and the night. What a beauty and tranquillity on a quit sunny evening
The 27th of may the fun ended. On the way to England one of the genoa sheets got lose and hit me against my head and full on my eye First it looked just a knock on the head and a bleu eye. At that moment the wind was a force 6 Bft dead against us and 6 hours to go to England, no fun at all. We decided to turn back to Ostend, nice sailing with a back wind. Two days later I had no vision anymore with that eye. In Middelburg I went for medical help to Dr Bruynzeel a general practitioner. He was very kind and decisive. He send me to an ophthalmologist in Flushing. Again a kind and helpful professional. Great medical help. There is a big blood clot in the anterior eye chamber before my pupil. So no light passes to the back of the eye and therefore no vision. So now I am at home and patiently waiting for the blood clot to resolve and get my sight back.
