Tres Hombres has arrived in Ostend Belgium

Persbericht (dutch)

Na de vijfde trans-Atlantische handelsreis op rij vaart de motorloze schoenerbrik Tres Hombres momenteel richting Amsterdam om daar gelost te worden.

Op vrijdag 9 mei wordt aangemeerd aan de kade bij restaurant de Goudfazant aan de Aambeeldstraat in Amsterdam-Noord.

Daar worden vanaf 16 uur de goederen uit vooral het Caribisch gebied handmatig aan land gezet.

De ong. 100 balen cacaobonen voor de Chocolatemakers zullen door het opgetrommelde publiek naar het nabijgelegen fabriekje worden gebracht met alles waar geen motor in of aan zit.

Bijna 3000 liter eigen rum uit de Dominicaanse Republiek gaat naar de bottelarij, 14 vaten naar een Nederlandse en 2 naar een Oostenrijkse. Net als de 2 vaten traditionele Aldea ron van het Canarische eiland La Palma.

Zo’n 800 liter suikerrietmelasse zal in Oostenrijk tot rum worden verwerkt.

Verder gaan er ook nog balen koffiebonen, dozen cacaopoeder en flesjes kokosnotenolie uit de Dominicaanse Republiek en thee van de Azoren van boord.

Alle producten zijn zonder enige vervuilende uitstoot, enkel op windkracht vervoerd door de Tres Hombres. De eigenhandig omgebouwde visserijkotter is het zeilende boegbeeld van Fairtransport; dit is zowel de naam van deze unieke rederij, als ook een kwaliteitsaanduiding voor duurzaam vrachtvervoer; de tot voor kort ontbrekende schakel in het fair trade verhaal.

Fairtransport is een initiatief van de drie zeilvrienden Jorne Langelaan, Arjen van der Veen en Andreas Lackner en zit in een door Europa ondersteund internationaal consortium dat bezig is met de ontwikkeling van de Ecoliner, een hybride vrachtschip van 8000 ton , dat met hightech zeilen en een schone hulpmotor de concurrentie aan moet gaan met vergelijkbare motorschepen.

Van 11 tot 16 mei ligt de Tres Hombres tegenover de IJ-kantine op het terrein van de NDSM. Daar is het schip dagelijks toegankelijk tussen 10 en 17 uur. Het publiek krijgt een rondleiding en kan chocola en rum proeven.

Op 16 mei gaat de Grenada Chocoladekaravaan rijden; fietsers zullen de plm. 25000 excellente repen van de Grenada Chocolate Company naar alle verkooppunten brengen.

Voor het sluitstuk in Amsterdam wordt de Tres Hombres een stukje verplaatst naar de kade bij café Noorderlicht aan het NDSMplein. Hier wordt op zaterdag de 17-de vanaf 14 uur een afscheidsfeest gevierd met acrobatiek in de masten, twee bandjes en een dj. Eenieder is van harte welkom.

Het volledige programma is te zien op www.svtreshombres.com. en op facebook. Voor meer informatie, ook over meezeilen en vrachtvervoer: info@fairtransport.nl of via telefoonnummer 0223 683 516.

Ahoy,

This morning when I woke up,
The ship was at anchor and visibility till the bowsprit,
The sounds of a siren from the buoy close on our starboard side,
At seven we heaved anchor and were drifting in the nothingness,
No colours only grey, no horison everything the same
In the afternoon around the time of the changing of the watch,
A southerly breese arrived and the beams of sunlight came back down on us,
Slowly heading east with only square sails set.

Ahoy,

After a quick passage from the Acores, we arrived on the continental plate again.
This was our last part of ocean sailing for this trip. Because there was a big welcome happening organised in Falmouth,
we had some extra time and visited the port of Fowey first. This is a small town on the south coast of England.
The Bessie Ellen was also here and their crew offered some help when we where sailing in. After giving some pub owners an almost heart attack it was time to go back at sea. There was beautiful weather for sailing and did a lot of manoeuvres,which we didn´t do so much on the ocean. The night we anchored in St. Austell Bay.

Next day we set the sails again and together with the Bessie Ellen and a Pilot Cutter we sailed into the harbor of Falmouth. A boat full with people yelling and making photos with their cameras welcomed us at the lighthouse.
In Falmouth we unloaded the first barrel of rum and a bag of coffee beans, the quay was crowded with people. A horse and wagon where arriving for picking up the barrel of rum. Two days later we could already taste a glass of the rum, which we brought over the ocean.
We also met Chris and his blue container. He was selling Oyster and mussels, also he had Oyster Stout. In Falmouth it is only allowed to fish Oysters on the traditional way, which means by sail. Every winter ten or fifteen workboats sailing the Fal for catching Oysters.

Only fishing the traditional way, this should be complemented everywhere.
Monday we heaved anchor, set sail and smoothly departed the bay on our way to Isle of Wight. It was here in Yarmouth were we unloaded two tons of cacao beans. The weather was beautiful and with the high tide we heaved about thirty bags of beans on the pier.
A lot of people came by to visit the Tres Hombres and were interested in our story. In the evening we visited Yarmouth.

Meanwhile we are back at sea. There is no wind or sometimes just a little. Every tide we drift some miles in the east and when the current change we drop anchor. Tomorrow more wind will come. Amsterdam is not far from now anymore.

Ahoy,
After the fast crossing from the Acores till the continental plate,
Now we approach the English coast slowly.
Easy sailing, sunshine over the day and lots of stars in the night.
Still enough time to explore some other anchorages before we sail to Falmouth.
