Havenkrant Ghent boarded tugboat Brugge

On Monday 21 November 2016, the reporters of Havenkrant Ghent boarded the tugboat Brugge to spend a day with the crew and interview them for an article in the Havenkrant magazine.

Together with its sister ship the Gent, the Brugge towed the Russian cargo ship Pomyore through the Terneuzen - Gent Canal. The crew is an experienced trio, consisting of Captain Rudy Notterdaeme, Helmsman Dirk De Wilde and Engineer Johan Van Nieuwenhuyze, who have been sailing together for 28 years. They grew up in the surroundings of Ghent and know the canal like the back of their hands.
