In honor of the visit of the Prime Minister, the Dutch Ambassador of Canada, Wim Geerts, invited a very exclusive group of guests, including some of the Statendam officers. The location could not have been chosen better. Overlooking the skyline of Vancouver, it was an honor to visit the Prime Minister at the Royal Vancouver Yacht Club.

Bert van Mackelenbergh is Statendam’s hotel manager.
