Comment and pictures from Facebook 2022 "Today, exactly 40 years ago sailing yacht Prodent started in the Bicentenial Rotterdam - New York race. A crew of seven was on board. Skipper/owner Dirk NautaBert Visser, Godert Wieringa, Eelco Piena, Adriaan Hagdorn, Hans Hillige and Vincent de Vries. Prodent a Doug Peterson designed Two Tonner, built in 1975 as Williwaw, later Pinta and bought by Dirk Nauta for the Spice Race Djakarta - Rotterdam. The start was at Hook of Holland at 12:00 hours. Ten yachts were participating in the race. Prodent was one of the smaller yachts. The start was in light westerly winds. The windspeed increased the following days. The wind remained being westerly. Prodent did well the first days and entered the Ocean at Land's End as second yacht. The 10 ft larger Stad Rotterdam was the first yacht. Prodent choose the shorter northerly route. The other yachts went more south. After 23 days at the ocean (21 days upwind), having survived heavy westerly storms, been in the surrounding of icebergs, the crew: being in wet clothes all the time, sleeping in wet sleepingbags, being on deck without any shelter, Prodent finished at Ambrose light Platform at the entrance of the port of New York in the middle of the night. Prodent was the second yacht at the finish. Prodent won the race on rating, 1 hour and 54 minutes ahead of Stad Rotterdam. The other yachts were far behind. After having been at Larchmont Marina for 5 weeks, Prodent and crew sailed back to Rotterdam."

Comment from Facebook 2022 "To our knowledge decades ago Prodent was used for drugs trade. She was being sunk at the Moroccan coast. Divers did their job!! It was a great yacht. Very fast upwind. Dirk Nauta sold her in 1983 or '84."
