GENERAL SYNOPSIS: ON BOARD THE TRES HOMBRES
Ahoy sailing friends,
After staying about twenty days on the Belgium coast we are proceeding our way to Amsterdam.
In Blankenberge we stayed for the Havenfeest. Zeebrugge was our next port of call, here we did some maintainance.
This evening we left the port of Oostende after four days of Harbor Festival.
We had a very good time here on the Vlaamse Kust and made a lot of friends.
Meeting people, telling our stories and selling our products on the ship.
Now we are sailing our way between the windmill farms and stinking cargo ships.
Not a very nice surrounding I must say.
With the wind in our sails we are proceeding well along the coast. Last miles of this voyage to go.
In Amsterdam we will unload the cargo and a new crew will come on board.
Ready to sail the next cargo run.

I allowed us to do it because it’s possible and it’s very important to understand your ship under all circumstances, […]
