Hello Tres Hombres crew, trainees, back-office and other supporters,
I would like to say that this trip from Scotland to Den Helder by way of Great Yarmouth was one of the most special experiences of my life, both on shore and at sea.
Thanks everybody on board for the good company we kept. (And special thanks to Wessel for the excellent three course meals with which he gladdened our hearts and stomachs at least twice a day.)

If anybody would like to have pictures in better quality (or different ones, as I took more than these), just let me know.
You may also share the links with other people that might be interested, but whose addresses I don’t have.

The departure maneuver in Copenhagen was super cool and smooth! It is great to move a big sailing ship like this in a harbor under sails. Nowadays being under sails inside a port is forbidden. I allowed us to do it because it’s possible and it’s very important to understand your ship under all circumstances, […]
