On Monday the 30th of June 2014 we finally left Kortrijk (Courtrai), Belgium, at 09:00AM. Our aim was to return to France, Lille (Rijsel) to be precise. We cruised the river Leie (Lys) for another 28,3 kilometers over 18,5 miles), on the way negotiating a first lock with a Dutch/Flemish speaking lock keeper, followed by a second lock with a French speaking lock keeper, before reaching the river La Deule – the latter leading towards Lille. The river Leie acts as the Belgian/French border for 22,5 kilometers (14 miles) between Menen and Armantieres. Because of the canalization one sometimes cruises in Belgium; the next moment in France. The water is equally wet in both countries, we have established. After negotiating a third lock on La Deule we stopped at Wambrechies around 3:45PM. Wambrechies is a sort of Lille-suburb – pretty close to it anyway. This picture shows our ship inside Wambrechies’ harbour, well enough protected against the sometimes violent movement of the water, caused by the passing commercials.
