decided to take a berth a couple of hours,to better catch the tide,once turning
into the bay of Antwerpen.Berthed alongside,and neighbour to a fantastic Swedish
Early morning September 27,we reached Vlissingen and came into leeward from wind and sea.Anton who slept all night because of a persistent cold,felt better in the morning and took over.Tell and I went to sleep ,and woke up close to Linkeroever Marina in Antwerpen,just in perfect time for the tide and opening of the tidal locks into the marina.At 1600 hrs we were berthed alongside in the marina,and the whiskey that followed was one of the better.Dinner and beer in the city,and the day after was spent cleaning,trying to repair the LCD –screen in the cockpit(by changing whole cable),and preparing Tarita for 3 months berthing.Tell and I leave with the train for Amsterdam tomorrow,and further with airplane to Stockholm.Anton remains onboard a couple of days.
Tarita will await further transport in the beginning
