FS_40 WITH LISE AUTOGENA AND A STORY ABOUT ZELDENRUST III, CROSSING THE CHANNEL AND A NEW MOORING IN LONDON


Lise Autogena has been involved in setting up a new new mooring on the Thames in London, then refurbished a boat in Rotterdam to bring it over to London, and she is back now. We are looking forward seeing Lise again and listening to a truely amazing story.

Join us for food and drinks from 19.00 at our studio on 1-5 Vyner Street.

From an e mail from Lise recently:

Dear all

I have now finally arrived at Tower Bridge with Zeldenrust III, after the most fantastic journey through Holland, Belgium and finally across the sea and into the Thames Estuary, to my new mooring right in front of Tower Bridge. We left Rotterdam on the 21st March and arrived in London early Saturday morning on the 10th April, having waited for a quiet sea in Belgium for two weeks. A huge rainbow saluted us before leaving Belgium, and a group of dolphins accompanied us the whole way across the sea. Apart from Martin's jokes, it was a truly magical crossing across a calm sun-filled sea, and we sailed into London as the morning haze lifted from the Thames and daylight broke over London. It was a truly magical climax after three years of ship building and six years of dreaming of a new mooring in London.
