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.

The next step is putting a miniature of our own ship in the bottle. Who’s up for the challenge?

Mornings are grey, afternoons are sunny. Probably an effect from temperature changes. Dense fog at times and horn sound from invisible creatures. The Moon is growing each day among the stars. Breads rise well and overflow into the bottom of the oven and are delicious. The four cans of tea and coffee are very often […]
…of Skagerrak is quite smooth. 20 or 25 kts were expected in the middle so I drew a blue line on the chart, do not pass over. Fortunately we never had to dowse the royal and as soon as the wind increased we turned the ship around towards the peaceful Danish coast. Each watch gets […]
