Wie zijn wij?

Bart Hiltermann en Birgit Kist. Momenteel resp 59 en 58 jaar oud. Sinds 1973 zijn we bij elkaar en we kennen elkaar nog enkele jaren langer. Ouders van 3 kinderen: Charlotte, 29 jaar, fysiotherapeute en manueel therapeut, samenwonend met Matthijs van de Berg, 30 jaar, werkzaam in de IT als zelfstandig consultant (én ……  bouwer van deze website!); Christoffel, 27 jaar, socioloog met een MBA aan de Erasmus Universiteit te Rotterdam, sinds april 2010 werkzaam bij Google in Dublin en last but not least Lodewijk, 22 jaar, student psychologie in Rotterdam.

Wij hebben gedurende 21 jaar als apotheekhoudende huisarts gewerkt in Dreumel, in het Land van Maas en Waal. Voordien was Birgit werkzaam in het onderwijs en Bart als verslavingsarts in Groningen. Beiden zijn we met zeilen opgegroeid. Birgit bracht als kind vele vakanties in Friesland door en voer later met haar ouders op hun kajuitzeilboot. Bart leerde als 12 jarige zeilen op de Rijn bij Arnhem, eerst in een zeilkano en later in een jol en een Stern. Hij was een tijdje zeilinstructeur bij Vinea. Ook tijdens de studie werd er geregeld gezeild.

Ons eerste zeilavontuur was met Charlotte, 9 maanden oud, in een Victoire 22, een (in veel opzichten) onvergetelijke vakantie. Later waren we tijdens veel vakanties aan en op het water te vinden. De leukste herinneringen hebben we aan de vele vakanties in Friesland, waar we altijd mooie tochten maakten met onze kinderen en hun vriendjes. Maar nooit bezaten we een eigen boot. (Dit is niet helemaal waar, want sinds 1998 is er weer een Sterntje in huize Hiltermann.)

In 2003 is daarin verandering gekomen. We waren aan het invullen wat we als “vutters” na 2012 of 2013 wilden gaan doen. En daarbij kwam een oude wens naar boven; een wereldreis op eigen kiel. Zoekend naar schepen waarmee deze wens verwezenlijkt zou kunnen worden, kwamen we vele geschikte boten tegen, maar slechts weinigen konden Birgit\’s toets der esthetiek doorstaan. Toen we ons afvroegen welk schepen hieraan wel voldeden, bleken dit allen Koopman\’s ontwerpen te zijn. Per toeval liepen we de Dikke Druyff tegen het lijf. Het was meteen liefde op het eerste gezicht. Het klikte ook goed tussen ons en de vorige eigenaren, Jan en Thea Tholen. Vanaf september 2003 mogen wij ons de trotse eigenaar noemen van ons éérste “echte” schip, een stalen Koopmans van 44 voet!

Hoewel we veel zeilervaring hadden, hadden we (behoudens een weekje flotielje in Turkije) in het geheel geen zeezeilervaring. Maar daar hebben we geen zeegras over laten groeien. In 2004 zijn we met een flotielje naar de Scilly\’s geweest en het jaar daarna (alleen) naar Bretagne. In 2006 hebben we Denemarken gerond (via het Ljimfjord) en in 2007 Zuid Engeland aangedaan. Het jaar daarna hebben we Schotland gerond. Na een rustig jaar in 2009 zijn we in 2010 “verhuisboot” naar Dublin geweest voor Christoffel en  hebben vervolgens de westkust van Ierland verkend.Tussendoor hebben we meerdere malen Londen bezocht, de waddeneilanden, het IJsselmeer, Amsterdam, Antwerpen, enz. enz. In het totaal hebben hebben we inmiddels een kleine 12.000 nm afgelegd met de Dikke Druyff.

Birgit is meer de rustige zeiler van ons tweeen, degene die van de mooie ankerplaatsen geniet, en het heerlijk vind om in een stadje te passagieren, een fietstocht te maken, een museum te bezoeken of lekker te lezen. Een tocht zou 1 dag zeilen moeten zijn en 2 dagen rusten. Zij is de organisator van inwendige mens. Zij is warmbloedig en minder geschikt voor de hogere breedtegraden. Toch schuwt ze het avontuur niet en tijdens de wachten heeft ze meermalen een windje 9 alleen doorstaan.

Bart is meer de techneut, de doener, de voordekker, de eerste monteur. Hij gaat soms tot het gaatje. Hij is ook de perfectionist; het kan altijd mooier, beter, sneller. Hij is de doe het zelver pur sang, (auto\’s, huizen, computers; hij heeft het allemaal \’gedaan\’) en vindt dat hij alle techniek aan boord moet kunnen beheersen en zo nodig repareren. Voor hem is het glas nooit half leeg!

Samen zijn we niet bang (meestal niet) en lossen we het goed op (meestal wel).

Inmiddels hebben we eind 2009 onze huisartsenpraktijk overgedragen aan een opvolger, sneller dan wij aanvankelijk voor ogen hadden.
Onze grote reis komt hierdoor steeds dichter bij!
