Join me when Lady Liselot is moored in the village of Tholen, The Netherlands, where gusts challenge our escape plans. In this enthralling episode, witness our Dutch Marina Escape unfold amidst howling winds attempting to thwart our New Year's voyage to Belgium.

Experience the thrill of navigating through fierce winds that push us at precarious angles, and watch as we strategize our path through Zeeland's waterways. Our captain's adept skills are on full display as he maneuvers Lady Liselot with precision, communicating via VHF to overcome the elements and unexpected wind barriers.

Feel the anticipation build as we prepare for what lies ahead. Will the elements relent, allowing us to continue our journey, or will the winds decide our fate? Upcoming episodes promise more adventure, revealing the resilience of both captain and craft.

Bridge Won't Open In Storm 34+knts But The Bridge- Lock operator finds a trick to get me in; S4/E02

This channel follows a format: "Join Henk-Jan, whilst he cruises with Lady Liselot".
That's it. This automatically means: no boat tour and no boat jobs. These subjects do not fit the format. So, I aim to give you a feel for what life's like aboard for me and hope you enjoy it, perhaps relate to it or maybe even learn something. But it's simply my story and the way I do things. Nothing more, nothing less.

Waarom ik alles in het Engels doe?
Omdat ik video's kijk van Fransen, Denen, Noren, Spanjaarden, Portugezen, Duitsers én heel veel Engelstaligen die allemaal Engels lullen en ook bootjesmensen / liveaboards zijn. Want alleen dan kan je je ervaring wereldwijd delen. En wat blijkt? Mijn video's worden in 127 landen bekeken (zie S03/E01 voor de lijst). Veel van mijn kijkers en abonnees zijn Engelstaligen die mijn video's helemaal top vinden, omdat ze óf familie hebben uit Nederland, of hier jaren geleden zijn geboren en door omstandigheden nu elders op de wereld wonen. En, dat ik dan Engels spreek met een accentje (net als de Fransen, Denen, Noren, Spanjaarden, Portugezen, Duitsers overigens) dan interesseert hen dat geen reet.

Weet je dat Nederlandse ondertiteling aan kan zetten? Doorgaans zo'n 4 uur nadat de video is gepubliceerd. Klik op de video, en kies uit de iconen die rechtsonder verschijnen dan voor [ondertiteling] en kies daar voor Nederlands. Dan wordt zelfs mijn steenkolen Engels (knap he van die jongens en meisjes YouTube) vertaald naar Nederlandsch.
