At the moment there are several beautiful sailing ships moored at the former navy warf, Willemsoord, Den Helder Netherlands. Amongst them Morgenster, Tecla and our second sailing cargo vessel Nordlys.
Up-coming weeks a big group of people will help us getting Tres Hombres in ship-shape condition again to sail around the Atlantic for the 6th time! We are always in need of some skilled hands.
