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