Last night, the waves Tres Hombres is sailing on, did change
no more long swell, large waves and deep blue water
We reached the European continental plate
From 6000 m, the deep became 100 m

We are now accompanied by European sea gulls, like one hundred
Flying around our ship, playing with the wind in our sails
Smart animal, they learn quickly that when Giusepe our cook is going out the galley
It’s to trow away the vegetable peels, they almost fly into the galley
They also give us welcome gift as many white spot of fertilizer on deck
I’m quit sur they try to hit the steerer when he’s out of course
Nice to hear the typically ‘my my my’ of north coast of Europe

anyway Tres Hombres is back in his water
Sailing now full and by starboard tack in between Cornwall and Ireland
Just 600 nM away of Den Helder
Just the English Channel to pass
With east wind, otherwise there is no fun
Many tacking in front of us

Greetings from the Ocean
