Hello, Fred,
thank you for those excellent photos. The original oil painting of this remarkable yacht has been hanging on our wall in the Bruynzeel House in Stellenbosch for the last 32 years:) We also have the wonderful wood carving, Bruynzeel won on the Trans pacific race 1967.

We have sold the house (with a bleeding heart) and will move back to Germany - alas, nothing lasts...

Beautiful photos of an extraordinary yacht. Never seen her "live" but since my parents where on board for the bigger part of the late sixties I am brought up with stories of Stormvogel.
Believe my father, Peter Lindeberg, were skippering her on TransPac 1967.

Hi, I was mate aboard Stormvogel in the early '70s in the Caribbean. We sailed between Grenada and Antigua on the charter route. It was a really great experience. On board once, was a well know National Geographic photographer (name now forgotten) and he took many photographs for a brochure that was printed up (with me pouring wine in the main salon...). I wish I could recover those images - he was a renown photographer. We sailed back from Antigua to Gibraltar in some really fast time - a true racing crossing.
Of course Stormvogel was featured in the movie "Dead Calm", and when I saw the movie - well worth watching on it's own merits, I almost fell out of my chair when I recognized the boat.
Thanks to all who designed and built such a great vessel!
