Birthday, 19 sails and 3 Dorada┬┤s by Freya

by the Crew of Tres Hombres on 12/21/12


Captain Arjen seems very satisfied with his birthday, a well organized paint locker and 19 sails. with the raintent and ┬┤tres ninos┬┤ sail functioning as stunsails, we race over the ocean going 8 knots with 4 bft!! As an other present 3 dorada┬┤s were caught and an apple pie was made.

We also managed to get our very own cristmas tree up the mast.

Best wishes,

Second mate Freya van Zon
