50 nautical miles to Horta de Fail
Sailing *Hard on the Wind*
As close as possible of the *Eye Of The Wind*
Not with a great speed, around the half of Full and By’ speed

Within a focus steering, we can make it without tacking
Tacking up and down is not a good option without a full main sail
We manage to fix it on the second reef, but now we running out of sawing thread

And we’ll eat our last pumpkin at lunch

If the wind don’t back and with a little help from Neptune
Tres Hombres will cast her mooring lines in Horta de Faial tonight or tomorrow morning
In a Bristol Ship Shape way

That how it’s goes on a traditional real sailing ship
