Trip Haarlem to IJmuiden
 April 12, 2001



This trip was our first one after we purchased the vessel in January 2001.  Our home voyage  was in 3 stages. The first leg was from it previous berth in Haarlem to IJmuiden. We have to pass the A9 motorway bridge. This bridge only opens twice a day, at 1200 pm and at 08.00 pm .
