Monika and Jörg

It started 1989 during a sailing course in Bad Zwischenahn, a small town on a lake in northern Germany.

Easy sailing in a Zugvogel class boat.

Sportively in a Laser II. In such a boat we had a very special capsizing experience...

which in fact was a marriage proposal in disguise

with a result as desired.

(Text on boat bottom, to be read after capsizing: Dear Monika - we are a match - would you like to be my Lady Kenterböri?
Lady Kenterböri is an allusion to German kentern - to capsize - and the English town Canterbury - Jörg' nickname is Lord Kenterböri because of his frequent capsizing experiences.)
