Dordrecht Arrival - 24 October 2013

The 'City of Adelaide' arrived at the Hook of Holland at 18:00 local time on 24 October 2013 where it entered the canal system. It arrived at a quay in Dordrecht, Netherlands, about 22:00.

Gale force winds had delayed the crossing of the Channel for four days and the tow had to shelter at Sheerness.

Final preparations for the voyage to South Australia will be undertaken at the quay in Dordrecht before the clipper is hoisted aboard the heavy-lift ship.
