GENERAL SYNOPSIS: ON BOARD THE TRES HOMBRES
WIND SPD:15 kn
We are now crossing the Caribean Sea from the south to the north. The water temperature is still above 25 degrees Celsius.
Dominican Republic is our destination. Most of our cargo will be loaded here again. Last island we departed from is Bonaire. One of our crew members, Joel,who sailed on Tres Hombres for more then three years stayed with his family on the island.
Joel all the best, we are going to miss you!
At Bonaire we didn´t only enjoyed the beauty of mother earth. We also got in contact with Jaap and Sanny from ¨Onima Aloe¨ . They have a small farm with Aloe Vera plants and Jaap is making 100% pure Aloe Vera gel and other pure products from the plant. They were very interested in shipping their precious product with the Tres Hombres to the Netherlands. Now we have a container with about 230 lt. of this natural gel in our cargohold bound for Amsterdam. Almost all of the aloe vera products are made of an extract. This process declines the healing properties of the plant. Onima Aloe makes the gel directly from the plant, which makes it a straightforward honest product. Onima Aloe also wants to cooporate with the small local farmers on the island and stimulate them keep their product natural as well. This is a beautiful product to ship with fairtransport and perhaps next year their will be natural Tres Hombres Aloe Vera Suncreme on the market made by Onima. Stay tuned!!
Sailing is the most efficient way to use the energy from the wind. On board of Tres Hombres we are working with joy to sail all kind of natural products to you.
Best wishes to everyone
Tres Hombres Crew
Si amigo, ya lo se! Pero no entiendo bien. Que es el mensaje que me quiere dar este pais maravilloso? O este paisaje salvaje, como dice mi amigo Dominicano Manuel, jajaja. Ya venimos por la Republica Dominicana desde el 2010, al primer viaje, cuando llegamos a la Bahia de las Aguilas con el mastil quebrado, […]
It’s noon on Friday, the 22nd of January and the Tres Hombres rolls gently at anchor in Carlisle Bay, just off Bridgetown, the capital of Barbados. It’s a typical Caribbean scene with white sandy beaches, palm trees, blue skies, azure seas and yachts bobbing at anchor. However, this year everything is different, it is just […]
You find yourself outside of the intercontinental human communications and information network when you are at anchor for a few days without internet. But life goes on, and how! A short impression of a disconnected time aboard in vicinity of Barbados: (not allowed to touch the land ) Wake up at 0530, heave anchor, receive […]
