We did that need to be done

One more time, the good ship schooner brig Tres Hombres came back in Amsterdam.
After a 8 months journey around the Atlantic.
7 tons of cocoa, 24 barrels of rum from Canaries island and Dominican republic.
Tea, catmint and 4000 tuna cans from Azores.
Aloe Vera from Bonaire and chocolate from Grenade.
Transported by sail, loaded and unloaded by hands.

In Amsterdam, a lot of friends came to help unload the cargo.
Thank you so much guys
What a great welcome party we had.

Then we sail up the Markemeer to Enkhuizen
And the Ijsselmeer to Den Helder.

Back home
The Nordlys Crew was here to catch the lines.
2 fairtransport’ ships in the same harbors.
A great feeling.
A lot of work was done this winter.
Good job crews, she look pretty, fast and strong.

Now we sailing down the Channel,
Bounding for Douarnenez,
We still have 10 barrels of the best French Wine on board,
After 7 months aging at sea with us,it’s time to test it, sorry delivery it.

Have a good day
