HAPPY NEW YEAR (by Rymke Boonstra & captain Anne-Flore Gannat)

4 Beauforts.
Moderate breeze, small waves, breaking crests, white horses.
Dear loved ones, fellow humans, relations,
HAPPY NEW YEAR to all of you, with good winds, and good navigations on all levels, for us and the next generations.
Sailing into golden sunsets…
Here is a message from the Atlantic Ocean. There is a North East wind, we are well, the ship holds us and we hold the ship.
It's like an autonomous village here. We brace, we embrace. Bonding together as a family in diversity. Working, living, and being together. Gathering around the wheel, when the watch is changing. With a common mission to cross the ocean, celebrate the new year, put some messages in a rum bottle, sealed with tarwax and offered to the deep waters. At the moment the water is 5000 m deep.
Even Neptunus may appear!
Flying high with the winds, going with the water. Flying fishes were already on deck before the sunshine; some died when we jibed. Some of us ate them… beautiful and tasty.
Going on and off watch. Even everyone from now, when the weather allows, can have a holiday watch, one by one…
What a blessing! Life is good! Ahoy!
Keep course and speed!
Keeping course and speed!
Moment to moment…

I want to add a big thanks and hugs to Fairtansport company's loyal staff who since the beginning are precious partners and links with the land producers and shipper,
to the Tres Hombres and Nordlys crew members and trainees who sailed the simplest and their craziest moments of their lives on board, thanks to the “old” captains who built up this giant family and give enough confidence to take over after them in peace.
Let's wish the Tres to come back for many more years on this sunny latitude, running the traditional Trade wind course …
