We arrived in Antwerpen by car in the evening January 2.Antwerpen was freezing cold,but after some hours of heating,the main cabin in Tarita was warm and comfortable.After contact with the local agent of Sevenstar Ocean Yacht Transport,we learned to know that loading was planned to January 5.Two days was spent preparing Tarita for the ocean with packing and securing equipment.

The seawaterpump of Perkins was serviced with replacement of packbox,the satellitetelephone was tested connectecting to the internet okey,and our new navigationprogram on the ships computer was tested okey.Around lunchtime January 5 we left Jachthaven Linkeroever for M/S  Amstelgracht in Vrasendock Antwerpen Harbour,and scheduled for loading at 15.30.Tarita spent 3 months in Jachthaven Linkeroever,and has been very well taken care of.Thank you indeed Jan Derboven!!
