|Integrating Philosophy with boat design
Hanneke Boon made this presentation at a Pecha Kucha event in Amsterdam. This is a new lecture concept originating in Japan where every speaker can show 20 slides to which he/she can talk for 20 seconds each, i.e. a total of 6 minutes 40 seconds presentation. Writing for a Pecha Kucha is more like writing poetry than a lecture. These 6 minutes were an illustrated poem of Hanneke, from a young girl sailing with her father, ending up as a boatbuilder, ocean sailor and designer.
The Lapita Voyage was a charitable project which began in the first week of November 2008, when 2 double canoes, based on the ancient Polynesian canoe form of the islands of Anuta and Tikopia, set out on a 4,000Nm voyage along the island chains of the Philippines, Indonesia, New Guinea to finally arrive in Anuta and Tikopia, two tiny, remote islands at the Eastern end of the Solomons, where the boats were donated to the islanders for future inter island voyaging. They followed the Lapita Pottery trail that archaeologists believe to be the route of the Polynesian migrations.

|Sailing through the first Gulf war in 1988
We worked for 18 months like crazy and finished building our Pahi 42 feet Catamaran, a James Wharram design, in time! This is the video we made during the building in Bahrain and also of our "Sailing through the first Gulf War in 1988", a war between Iraq and Iran, towards the coast of India and the Maldives. We've edited the original VHS tapes, made them digital, and included new interviews with my wife Agnes and myself in 2014, some 26 years later, it's funny to see yourself in 1988 and 2014. It seems to be very special material because of the time and the war that was going on around us, and we were the only yacht sailing in the Gulf at that time! See my whole story here.
