Girls day on the mv “Arca”

Last week I did a short trip of only 6 days on the mv “Arca”, we did some survey-work on the North Sea and I must say I had a very pleasant time on board. Wouldn’t mind at all going back now and then to do another one of these short stints. In this particular week a so-called “Girls day” was organised to promote technical jobs among girls. We went to visit one of the offshore windmill farms off IJmuiden with 20 girls on board, together with a variety of higher management people among which the Secretary of State for Education matters: Marja van Bijsterveldt-Vliegenthart.

This was all featured on the “Jeugdjournaal”, the news for kids in the Netherlands, please see the news broadcast here @ Uitzending Gemist (it’s in dutch, ofcourse).
