6 October 2015 - Fairtransport
Tres Hombres is ready to set sail again to make her 7th Atlantic Crossing.
After the refit at Teerenstra and at our docks, the good ship Tres Hombres will leave Den Helder for 5 months heading for the Carib.
Captain François Mangin and his crew have already welcomed the new trainees, who gathered themselves together at Fairtransport docks last week to get to know each other and Tres Hombres.
Tomorrow, Wednesday the 7th of October, they will leave and her first stop is, like sister Nordlys, Douarnenez, France.
We wish Captain François and his crew fair winds and following seas!
