Departing Rotterdam Aboard Boudicca
Jun 13, 2008

Sail away from Rotterdam 18:00 aboard ms Boudicca. We had for over an hour been serenaded by Barend Fox, a shanty choir from the Rotterdam Fire Brigade; it was fun.
Being Boudicca's first ever call at Rotterdam we had a fire-tug spraying too. A lovely send off with many waving and cheering from the banks of the Nieuwe Maas.
