Thank you Geert

On July 7 Mary had organised a party for as many people as reasonably possible from the Sea Scout crew. It was a very relaxed and pleasant evening; full of stories, good food, wine and beer and (of course) a plastic mug of rum for everyone.
When darkness had fallen Mary read some messages from e-mails of people who were not able to attend. With hardly any light, as we were used to on board.
This party and the atmosphere were the best possible way to say ‘thank you’ again to Geert, whom we considered ‘the best skipper ever’, to say goodbye to each other (the ‘best crew ever’, whose members, although most of them had never met before, felt very familiar immediately) and ‘the best ship ever’: Sea Scout. We’ll meet again.
