Unusual Transport for Matrix Instructor

Matrix Instructor Harry Thorburn delivered a two day TapRooT course on Saturday 14 and Sunday 15 February (what a way to spend Valentine’s day!) on board a vessel in Rotterdam harbour.

Unknown to Harry, during the morning of the second day, the ship had taken to the sea to conduct trials in the harbour basin. When the course finished, Harry realised he was a little bit away from dry land and due to having a taxi waiting for him to take him back to Amsterdam Airport, he was left with no choice but to approach the ship’s Captain.
The ship was unable to berth at dock again however refusing to have Harry miss his flight, the ship returned close enough allowing the ever versatile Harry to be hoisted in a cage by a crane and swung onto the quayside, much to the amusement of the awaiting taxi driver!
All in a day’s work for this Matrix Instructor!
