Day 16

We the crew of the Tres Hombres made good progress crossing the Atlantic at this time of the year. We encountered two Low weather systems which helped us moving fast going East. Now we get near to Europe and we can almost touch the continental shelf, the wind turned against us. Europe has an Indian Summer and we have east wind just in front of the Channel. Life on board a sailing vessel you got to adapt to the elements and you got to make the best of it. We are looking at the weather and wind forecast very close. There is hope that the wind will turn in our favor the next days.

Best regards with love

Captain Arjen van der Veen
