My name is Alastair Macdonald and I sailed on the MV Stork during a hectic 3 months in 1964. If I hadn't found this site I would have believed that I had imagined the entire experience.

We sailed from Felixstowe Harbour to either Amsterdam or Harlingen (up in north Holland) inside the line of the Friesian Isles.

I must say I lived an entire lifetime in that quarter of a year.

Thanks
