The paddle steamer is PLANNED to make one of her "occasional" visits to Lecco
this weekend

According to the NLC the normal "two" afternoon round trips from
Lecco to Onno will be replaced by just one at 1600
(to be operated by the paddle steamer)
- similar to her first visit in 2019

Did this same arrangement apply on the first sailing of 2022 to Lecco (Sunday 5th June) ?
Surely someone visiting this website was on board and can confirm or advise otherwise !!!!!

"THE" steam sailing of the winter !!!







                                                  photos:   Daniel Eichenberger,  Ernst Mischler,  Robert Horlacher and Jean Vernet

The paddle steamer stands at Geneva Mont-Blanc pier prior to the "one way" winter
special sailing along the full length of the lake to Le Bouveret
before passing MPV Italie
(at Jardin Anglais pier waiting to operate the regular Sunday sailings 330-331 to Nyon) and PS Simplon (laid-up for the winter)
She is later seen approaching the normally 'summer only' pier at Corsier then at the border town pier at St Gingolph (where passengers had the option to alight and return to Vevey or Montreux on mv Général-Guisan)

This sailing brings back memories of the old "Grand Races" which PS Rhône
operated on a daily basis all summer back in the mid and late-1990s

following an unsuccessful experiment to allocate these sailings to
mv Lausanne on peak dates in the summers earlier in the decade
