More info
Date of signing on
On this day we welcome you on board from 8 pm onwards. A crew member will introduce you to the captain, the first mate (who will receive your passport and possibly your sample book) and the other members of the crew. We shall assign you a bunk and chest (usually in the fo’c’sle). Linen and sleeping bag are best brought from home. Before departure you will be assigned to the port watch (under the supervision of the first mate) or the starboard watch Incidentally the ship has not arrived in the port of departure; we shall let you know as early as possible if this is the case.
 
Route
As a rule the ship departs on the day after signing on. With “all hands” the sail is set and the ship is made ready for the sea. You will be informed which watch stays on deck, leaving the other watch free to take a nap. The captain chooses the fastest and safest route to its destination. The first and second mate will instruct the crew. You will be involved in every aspect of seamanship from the moment you arrive; safety training, steering the ship, keeping watch, maintenance, setting sail and lots more. Depended on the weather, the distance and the kind of trip, the ship will arrive at its destination after a couple of days or weeks. This doesn’t mean the trip is at its end; the days after arrival are filled with instructive and interesting activities. The ship is prepared for port, cargo is taken in and out, there is some maintenance that can only be done in a harbour and the opportunity presents itself to go on shore leave.
 

The route may be altered, depended on freight and weather.

 
Direct distance
This is the shortest possible distance between two harbors. The Tres Hombres being a true sailing ship without an engine, this distance is rarely the actual sailed distance. In other words, the ship usually sails many miles more than the direct distance. At the end of a leg of journey, the captain will inform you how many miles have been covered in reality.
 
Fee
This is the price in euros for said journey per person. In exchange you sail along and acquire a practical education in seamanship. In addition to the journey fee, we expect you to take part in watches and chores such as maintenance, sailing, cleaning, steering and being on the lookout. In the fee are included the ship’s meals: breakfast, lunch and dinner and coffee and tea. Not included are transfers to and from the ship.
 
Average journey/port stay
This is the estimated time at sea or in a harbor. The ship being dependent for the duration of her trips on weather and wind, this period may vary. If the ship arrives ahead of schedule at its destination, the days in port ahead of schedule are part of the journey.
 
Booking number
This number is a purely administrative number used for keeping score of persons on board.
Full Atlantic Roundtrip. If you are intent on becoming a true seaman and a taste of life as a seaman, this is your trip! During this 8 month journey you will acquire adequate time and experience as an able-bodied seaman.

Sail A Future: Setbul,Portugal 2014 by Paulo Gloria

4 young talentfull dancers came to dance on a sail, sailed from Holland by the Tres Hombres
They danced the paint all over the sail, inspired by the dance of the hands of Tanner from South Africa.
The couloured surface was transformed into a wonderfull painting by two Dominican artists.
