GENERAL SYNOPSIS: ON BOARD THE TRES HOMBRES
WIND SPD:3 Bf
SEA STATE:slight – some swell
Today we had a sunny day and not much wind.
Around two o´clock we all enjoyed lunch together on the cargo hedge.
Clothes were hanging out to dry and shoes were putting out to air our feet.
In the evening the wind slowly started picking up from the south.
A warm front is approaching, quickly followed by the cold.
We are heading more to the east, because of expecting easterly winds later.
Happy crew, happy sailing!!!
All the best from Tres Hombres
