Progress Report #2
Well as Andre is obviously checking up I had better prost some more news from his trip !!
After leaving the UK, they headed for Ijmuiden on the Dutch coast, just to the west of Amsterdam. They enjoyed calm seas, and were able maintain speeds of around 35-37 knots.
They were pleased to be met by Jaap, who is the Dutch distributor for Parker ribs; he came out by RIB and accompanied them into port. Andre claims they stayed in a hotel in Ijmuiden, and never went near Amsterdam.
The next morning (Friday 30/7/2004) they fuelled up and left for Denmark, rather than navigating through the Kiel canal as originally planned.
