Oh dear Steve, at what point did you become this bitter bitter man?;-) I'll leave at that so not to hog the comments. Chris

Hi Chris

[b][color=0033FF]"During one of these exercises, the crew of Johan de Witt were advised by UK colleagues that Sunderland would be the place of choice to finish off an intensive training period."[/color][/b]

Don't you think someone was having a joke at their expense 8-)

Hi Snobs :lol:

This was in the Sunderland Echo on Saturday,

No accident I assure you. :-P

Hi Neil

Yes, I reckon the crew got mixed up when they chose Sunderland - they obviously meant to head for the Tyne :lol:

All joking aside - they probably chose the Wear as the Northumbrian Quay was being used by the Thomson Spirit over the weekend,

Hi Steve,
Thats a pity,nice ship, oh and if the Sunderland night life is still the same as I remember it they'll need more R&R then!

Hi Neil

From one 'snob' to another :lol:

She wasn't open to the public - she was in Sunderland so that the crew could undertake R&R.

Hi Chris,
No offence or snobbery intended,what I should have said was the Corporation Quay is not, or was not accessible to just anyone,(unless things have changed) and I don't know if she was open to the public,and if not, the only views are from the fish quay or the north shore,as for Sunderland I have had some great times there in times gone by and I would recommend it to anyone.
Thanks for the p.s.congratulations for the team too

Steve, Neil, just one word for you two, snobs! :-) Sunderland was recommended by sailors in our very own Royal Navy. Perhaps they wanted to visit a place with Premier League footy :-). Chris p.s. Nice set of pics.

Hi Steve,
Thanks,yes we have better facilities too,but we have a small one due next week for Newcastle Quay as a consolation

Hi Neil

Pity she didn't come into the Tyne instead of the Wear, still we have to share with our neighbours I suppose :lol: - great shot.
