Off to Europe
CC Matisse destination, LeHavre, France
Well folks, It's official. Entr'acte is on her way to Europe. She was loaded on board the CC Matisse on 8 March, 2013 and as as we write this they are in Napier NZ preparing to head over to Panama and points East.
We wish to say a heart-felt "Thank You" to everyone in Noumea who made this happen and go so smoothly.
Gilbert Claude of CMA-CGM Bruno Escavi ,the main man! Yvan designs and builds the cradle.
Bruno Escavi of Expert Maritime for co-ordinating the construction of the cradle, transfer and loading on board ship and for his tireless attention to detail.
Richard and Krysta--Thanks for not taking NO for an answer.
Karine Vagner manager of Nouville Plaisance for being so accommodating. We are sorry we could not have stayed longer.
Jean Claude and Joelle who looked after Entr'acte all throughout the cyclone season, kept her bilges dry, batteries charged as well as countless other favors. We would have been lost without you. Thank you so much for the photos and video.
Matisse will call in Savannah Georgia on 8, April and we will go on board to make the trans-Atlantic passage with her. Our expected arrival date will be 23. April, LeHavre France.
Entr'acte is in there somewhere!
Our plan for this coming summer will be to travel the River Seine to Paris, the French Canal system to the River Rhone and on to the Mediterranean. Our ultimate destination will be Sevilla. It will be like coming home.
It is a real whirlwind here as we continue to play concerts throughout the Arizona area and at the same time making preparations for our up-coming trip.
We will keep you posted.
