AP Overwater, Strijen, The Netherlands is a superstar at the overnight long distance races.
One of the best dutch long distance fanciers over the last ten years!
And it is no secret that the Dutch overnight long distance fanciers and their pigeons are the best in the world. Selection and specialization are the key to the success!
In 1995 the fastest “Serie 3” at the National Pau race
In 1997 the fastest “Serie 3” at the National St.Vincent race
In 1999 the fastest “Serie 2” and “Serie 5” at the International Barcelona race (with 5 hens in competition)
His fanciership and the extremely good Overwater strain with the best pigeons at the breeding loft will be a guarantee for new success!
AP. Overwater built up his strain with children of the stock pigeons of two famous lofts: Peter vd Eijnden and Batenburg and Son. Both lofts were based at the Jan Aarden pigeons. Peter vd Eijnden foundation pigeon was a son of the famous “131”of Jan de Weert. Maybe the best Aarden based breeding and racing hen that ever lived?!
The Batenburg foundation pigeons “Witbuik”and his son the “Bonte Kweker” were Aarden/Bakker Barendregt pigeons.
Bij the method of cross breeding AP Overwater created a new type of long distance pigeon and his own strain. Succesfull at his own loft but also at the loft of many other fanciers.
