Vesselname:Jan van Gent
IMO No.:

During the last year we did not receive too many photos and reports, so we decided to put them all together in one report.

Fred was still travelling on MV Jan van Gent and most of the time, Kees took care of him.

Here is a summary of the photos and reports from Kees:

Fred is still onboard of mv. Jan van Gent. Currently we are waiting on the anchorage to go inside the Port of Huizhou for loading some additional containers on deck. Fred is here looking, while the second officer together with cookie, try to catch fish.

Fred is enjoying the skyline of Huizhou during our short port stay in China.

Zero covid policy in China. All crewmembers should wear facemasks. To be sure, also for Fred no exception.

And nobody on deck during loading.

12.04.2022: Fred is currently sailing through Panama canal. Underway to Houston

Since May 16th, 2022, Fred is back in Hamburg. After almost 12 years of travelling around the world on countless ships, Fred decided to stay at home and enjoy his retirement.

We are now trying to find a great place for Fred where he can stay and show all the photos and souveniers he collected during his unique adventure around the world.

Thanks a lot to all foster parents, all supporters and all friends of Fred who followed us over the last years.

It was a lot of fun and when we started the project we never thought that it will last for more than 11 years.
