Things are going well onboard

Good food and sailing makes a happy ship. A few are seasick but getting the hang of it. We are making good daily progress of around 200 miles a day. With a Northerly wind our direction is due East. We are getting a lift from a high pressure system that is on our tail. This high pressure system is becoming stationairy around the Azores. We will stay North of the System where we will keep the wsw winds.

We’ll keep you up to date on weather and Tres Hombres news. Yesterday we received a well appreciated message from captain Francois Mangin. Greetings back to our Nordlys friends who are sailing up the channel right now.

Best regards,

Captain Arjen van der Veen
