13 December. Twenty-seventh and twenty-sixth leg. Budel-Locarno-Budel 852Nm, totalling 20.383Nm

Regular readers of our blogs, must have seen that the total Nautical Miles of 20.883 are not in line with the 16.673 in our last blog. I have made some errors during this trip in my calculations and omitted moreover the legs Budel-Locarno-Budel.

We left Sophie in Amsterdam and we departed from Budel to Locarno with Niels Witte on board to join me on our return flight from Locarno to Budel on the same day.
