Tight schedule

[one_half_last]​The masts are on their place and our rigging team is working hard to put all running and standing rigging on it’s place.
A great job done by some amazing people!

Lucy and Dirk are finishing the last steelwork to strengthen the old frames of Nordlys.

And we just received some nice artist impressions of the Nordlys sail- , deck- , belowdeckplans. To see them have a look at



[one_half]During the last week our woodworkers discovered some less exciting things. After rebuilding about half the boat they discovered another rotten spot. Extra work to be done for our great crew and a refit-schedule which is now a little too tight.

To be sure this old lady will sail the seas safely, we have decided to postpone the start of Nordlys her career as Sailing Cargo Vessel. This means she will set sail again ​the end of May 2015

​ – We will keep you posted about the exact date!

Dear landlubbers, sailors & salty shellbacks,

Because Tres Hombres has more cargo to carry than she can carry during one Atlantic circumnavigation,  she will be sailing around the Atlantic Ocean twice next year !

The last years we’ve been working together with some amazing people and (small) businesses to fill up the cargohold of Tres Hombres. We’ve come to the conclusion that there is a lot more Fair Cargo to carry in a Fair Transport way across the Ocean.And that is what we will do!!

Until we’ve found / build a bigger Clipper Ship (more about this you’ll hear beginning of 2015), Tres Hombres will be sailing to the Carribean twice a year to pick up rum, chocolate, tea, cocao, and lots more. You can move your products with us or sail along with the ship >> check

Eastward crossing of the Atlantic ocean

The Eastward crossing of the Atlantic ocean is an experience you will never forget. Sailing towards the Azores we are sure you will see and hear the whales and dolphins playing around the ship. This trip will make you a real sailor with enough experience in sailing during all kind of weather circumstances!
