07 Dec Jump start
7 December 2022
After almost four months of maintenance, we left Rotterdam early in the afternoon yesterday. For those who don’t know: per the end of December I (Jan) will stop working for the ‘Oosterschelde’ so this will be my last trip for now. It started very well: as soon as we left the Nieuwe Waterweg we could set sail and we have already passed Dover where the sun gives the chalk cliffs a beautiful yellow-orange colour. We sail here with a north wind under the high shore, without too many waves at a speed of 8 knots towards the North Atlantic Ocean. I call that a jump start. Spirits are high!
