26 October 2016 - Fairtransport
After almost seven months, several thousand miles and an unexpected stop in Nova Scotia, Tres Hombres is almost back in Amsterdam.
Our engineless sail cargo ship Tres Hombres rounded the Atlantic for the eighth time, her belly full with melasses, cacao beans, green coffee beans and barrels of our finest rum.
So on the 29th October we are going to unload our brigantine and we could use some extra hands.

Location NDSM werf near the Pannekoekenboot.
