The club of Gillissenvaarders exists since 2004. It is a cosy and active foundation. Yearly around Whitsun a member weekend will be organized in  a different marina every year. Coffee palaver, jetty drinks, excursions, BBQ or dinner buffet are part of the program starting on the Friday before Whitsum and ending Whitsun Sunday.

Also in winter seasons one or two meetings will be organized with interesting presentations and/or visits.
