GENERAL SYNOPSIS: ON BOARD THE TRES HOMBRES
After a stormy night sailing due West we got Falmouth in sight. Just of the coast we tacked with all hands and heading South with a WSW wind. The weather is again beautiful with enough sun to make life on deck comfortable. The cook made us apple crunch for breakfast, she has a hard job with these high seas smashing the bow up and down. Thanks to her the engines are fed good. Yes the crew on board are the engine of this clippership. And a stormy Sunday it will be. The wind will veer to the West North West later. That will do for Dournenez!
