A STORY OF NORDLYS
After her refit sailing cargo vessel Nordlys left in September 2015 for her maiden voyage. She soon showed us to be a very fast sailing ship. After a few days Nordlys was moored in Brixham.
The crew was able to caulk some planks while falling dry in port and a few days after they set sail again.
They sailed to Douarnenez to drop her first cargo off existing of Tres Hombres Rum. Brought from the Caribean to the Netherlands by sailing cargo vessel Tres Hombres and shipped from there to Douarnenez by Nordlys and her crew.
After being on anchor for a few days in Douarnenez Nordlys got hid by a fishing vessel. The aft of the ship was badly damaged and the ship was put on the slipway in Douarnez for repairs.
The cargo of Tres Hombres Rum was delivered safely in port.
After three months of working in Douarnenez Nordlys was ready to set sail back to the Netherlands again.
This time with a cargo of organic Cider on board to bring back to Den Helder, Netherlands.
