14 September 2016 - Fairtransport
The good sailing ship Nordlys is in Douarnenez since two weeks now.
Last monday we start to load the yearly cargo of French wine to Denmark.
The past years Tres Hombres was doing the trip, and now Nordlys took over.
For the first time our old lady have is belly full of goods. From the bilge to the ceiling.
That how we load ships at FairTransport.
The water stay is almost in water, she look like real sailing cargo.
It took us four days to load in 10 000 bottles of wine.
Fitting square boxes into a rond ship was tricky.
Henk our first Mate did great work, then it’s now more than 25 tons of goods that we gonna deliver in Copenhagen.

Thanks to help us making our dreams come truth.
