09 May Pouring rain
9 May 2023
Today was an interesting day. It was pouring with rain. The ‘Helena’ was almost wetter above the waterline than below. Skipper Piet, Nathalie and Boy in bar and galley, Martin and Mike (M&M) voluntarily present. Boy dropped his soup. We fixed a new soup fast! At 10:30 the first guests from Pameijer arrived. Too early but so soaked that we quickly took them on board to dry up a bit in the hold. Scheduled departure was 11:30am. Bridge ordered, chat over coffee and at 11:25 not everyone was there yet. One of the guests got lost at Beurs station. Another guest went looking. Luckily both are back on board after 15 minutes. When we had just cast off the mooring lines, we received a message from the Leuvebrug that everything was closed indefinitely due to the corona crisis. an incident on the Erasmus Bridge. So then we went back to shore (good practice with throwing bunches!) and had lunch there. Finally decided to let the guests disembark again. They come back in the fall. They really liked it anyway!
