Statsraad Lehmkuhl at the start of the Tall Ships Race 2014 at Harlingen, a sail came loose while along side, it made alot of noise, more then the camera could pick up, because I was shielding the mic. a bit against the wind, but you could hear the banging of the sail troughout the harbour.

Coming back from drydock in Lemmer, and in day time passing the locks in Lelystad, we now squeeze trough the Schellingwoude bridge, which was a challenge because the bridge engineers had to come to over ride the safeties of the bridge decks so they go open a bid more otherwise the ships bridge wouldn't fit. you can here the captain calling out distances (half meter to 30 centimeter) to the owner (who was actually at the helm). then we move sideways to the biggest of the Oranje locks to enter Amsterdam there we get our Pilot to guide us trough the North-Sea channel to the Locks at IJmuiden so we can continue to the Northsea (and then London) we did do the IJsselmeer and Markermeer without pilot, because there is no pilotage there, we had the assistance of a tug.
