We from Tres Hombres are used to moving fair bottles of rum in our ship. That it could be the other way around as well was proved by Frans Dekker and his pal Henry.
They gave a workshop « Ship in a bottle » at the VOC day and used our Tres Hombres Rum bottles for it. From what we’ve heard the perfect shape and size!
The next step is putting a miniature of our own ship in the bottle. Who’s up for the challenge?

The NE breeze was already blowing gently during the night. What a wonderful moment to give freedom to our rusty anchor who held us for 48 hours in 25 m deep and let her dry under a warm sun on the cat head. Once we started drifting, lashing the anchor and securing the chain at […]
as every day the tide is changing, our course over ground is changing, the side where the sails are set is changing, the meals as well. Although something never changed since we left Amsterdam; the motivation expressed from all buddies on board. Yes, it is hard not to sleep well because of the boat bouncing […]
