Congratulations BCA Member Nicky Arnoldus!!

Posted By Jennifer Handley, May 5, 2014
Take a look at this great action shot of BCA member Nicky Arnoldus and daughter Serena Peck dinghy sailing in the Bay of Naples on the February/March cover of the Italian magazine Arte Navale Motor Yachting and Sailing!!

Originally from the Netherlands, Nicky is passionate about the 12 ft International dinghy (http://www.12footdinghy.org/).  She does the European racing circuit every summer, is the only competitor representing Canada and now ranks in 5th place. She was Dutch National Champion at the age of 22 in 1986, beating out all the old pros!  Congratulations Nicky and all the best this year!!

Check out http://www.12footdinghy.org/ for race results (under Cockshott Trophy) and some photos of her & Serena under News… "Team Canada: Nicky & Serena" at West Kirby, "Classique de Sciez" France 10.08.2012 & "the next generation" in Lucerne Switzerland 08.08.2012.

Nicky and her husband Larry Peck are bluewater members from Saturna Island (SV Meriah).
