The ship sailed to the Basque Country at the invitation of the committee of Donostia-San Sebastian European Capital of Culture 2016. We would enter into a long-term collaboration. At that stage, being awarded the title of Capital of Culture was the pride of the Basque Country and the committee was led by artists. We were there to include the small port town, which would be forgotten anyway, in the festivities of the Capital of Culture. The day after arrival we sailed to the old port of San Sebastian, to take part in the final of the national passion: the rowing competitions. We kept our distance, but received a lot of attention from the crowds and the TV cameras from the helicopter. At the press conference in the garden on the aft deck they were all there: the committee, the port and city authorities, the newspapers and again the television. The Fools opened a theater cabaret on Friday evening, a monthly ‘Theatrical Visit to the Ship’ and, for the Christmas holidays, a satirical play for children, which was also very entertaining for adults.
