The world’s only transatlantic, engineless cargo vessel, Tres Hombres, has arrived in Falmouth as part of its fifth consecutive journey from Europe to the Caribbean and back.
This brigantine, the first of the Fairtransport Shipping fleet, set sail from Holland on 18th of October 2013, calling in to Norway, France, Portugal and the Canaries on her way to Brazil and the Caribbean, and returning via Bermuda, the Azores and England before the last leg to her home port in the Netherlands. Parts of the fascinating voyage are set to feature in a BBC documentary next year.
She comes to Falmouth carrying rum and coffee, molasses, wine and chocolate bars to be delivered for sale in Europe.
