The return of windjammers

After 24 hours of good wind, moderate to fresh breeze, the Tres Hombres´ crew had change cloths,
No more T-shirt, shorts and bear feet,
Leather boots (with a new layer of grease), long trouser and rain jacket went out of the bags.
At dinner, hold fast your plate, flying stew on the menu,
Doing dishes is now acrobatic,
Having the dish station windward or leeward is eternal question aboard
Any way, splash back bone or flush in boots, everything gone be wet (except the cargo)

The outer jib is furled on the jib boom, the Royal is clawed up,
the upper bop packaged along the fore-mast, ready for “Full and By”
Welcome in north Atlantic
Her is the price to bring in Europe the best quality goods who only grown in America´s island

We are now doing nice progress to east
Looking forward the Azores archipelago
Were we gone load sweat tuna can

On the way to Amsterdam,
everyday closer
CARGO!!
