Bounty adrift in Lelystad
On Jan 18, 2018, the "Bounty" broke lose from its moorings in Lelystand and was floating through the port in the storm Friederike. A KNRM team entered the Bataviahaven by boat to take the "Bounty" to another location and capture it again. The "Bounty" on her way had damaged a scaffolding and a pier of the harbour. Fortunately there were no persons on board or on the pier. After the "Bounty" was secured, the crew of the ifeboat "Bert and Anneke Knape" helped a second sailing ship which had to be pulled off the quay because of the high water level leaving it half on the pierhead. After about one hour the salvage work was completed. Dutch report with photos: https://www.knrm.nl/nieuw...
