We gonna pass, we gonna pass, we gonna pass

The last 2 days, we had to deal with some low pressures moving from Atlantic north to the English channel,
The wind go up and down, several squalls passing through our way.

During a few hours we had kind of westerly winds, I tried to go south, bad idea Captain, we where to close of Biscay.. 🙂
The power of all Atlantic is smashing the continental plate here, building up crazy waves.And the low pressure didn’t want to move north east..
Let pass around by the north side!
Inside a low pressure, the wind turned anti clockwise

We are now steering west, to find some north wind.
Which will push us to the trade winds.

Everybody tired, cold and wet
We have to pump the energy  deep down in our body and spirit
But we going to pass..
We are not sailing cargo around the Atlantic because it’s easy

Later we’ll have good trade wind.
But now we have to pass the north Atlantic autumn low pressure

Thinking about you guys, below grey sky, rain, winter is coming
Drink a Rum, eat a piece of chocolate, enjoy a warm Azores Tee
Soon we’ll bring more.

Greetings from captain ofTres Hombres
