GENERAL SYNOPSIS: ON BOARD THE TRES HOMBRES
We gonna pass, we gonna pass, we gonna pass
The last 2 days, we had to deal with some low pressures moving from Atlantic north to the English channel,
The wind go up and down, several squalls passing through our way.
We are now steering west, to find some north wind.
Which will push us to the trade winds.
Everybody tired, cold and wet
We have to pump the energy deep down in our body and spirit
But we going to pass..
We are not sailing cargo around the Atlantic because it’s easy
Later we’ll have good trade wind.
But now we have to pass the north Atlantic autumn low pressure
Thinking about you guys, below grey sky, rain, winter is coming
Drink a Rum, eat a piece of chocolate, enjoy a warm Azores Tee
Soon we’ll bring more.
