In the recent period some more sailing was done. First, on Saturday September 6th for Alphatron in Rotterdam. As the World Harbour Days were held in that same weekend the Erasmus Bridge in Rotterdam only opened morning and evening at 7 o’clock. So it was decided to depart Friday afternoon, otherwise the black choir had to make a very long day. All had a great day and satisfied customers.
On Thursday, September 25th, the exhibition in Museum Maassluis : “35 years Furieade ” was officially opened by the mayor. An exhibition where various items from our archive can be seen.
The 35th Furieade on 3 and 4 October, was also quite a happening as it was a joint event with the closing ceremony of 400 years Maassluis. A spectacular opening with a leading role for the Furie on Friday , followed by a lantern parade with 5,000 participants , fireworks on the river and a performance by Ali -B. On Saturday it was beautiful warm weather, which resulted in many visitors and a cozy atmosphere.
