Brest – Copenhagen

The departure from Brest took place on the 19th of July at about 9.30am. The way out was made with the help of the neighbor and the wind, filling the sails quickly and pushing the « Tres Hombres » through the crowded fleet of the Tonnerres de Brest event. Needless to say that the engine-free ship was the only ship tacking out the entrance of the Brest channel. The current ran outwards and helped to a 90-degree tacking angle so open waters were easily reached. Crossing trajectory, « Stadsrad Lehmkühl » politely stopped the engines. Douarnenez was reached at about 5pm.

The « Tres Hombres » departed Douarnenez on the 23rd in the morning. North easterlies all the way to Brixham. Nice weather but all the way was tacking up north into Lime Bay, passing Start Point and heading for Berry Head. It did not take the expected 4 hours but 14, as the wind changed direction, slowly died away and the current turned. The next morning the Tres Hombres was steered safely into Brixham harbor entrance.

The departure from Brixham happened the day after, on the 25th. After some hassle with changing winds, the Tres Hombres finally got underway with a slightly backing tops’l and some fore n’ aft’s, using all the width of the harbor entrance channel. Prevailing westerlies pushed up in the Channel and within 3 days Den Helder was reached.

The « Tres Hombres » set out to Copenhagen late Monday 30th through a lock with the aid of a small tugboat, and proceeded to try to clear the outlying islands of homeport Den Helder. Anchorage for part of the night, and set off after midnight. Tuesday and Wednesday were full days sailing with 5 Beaufort wind much of the time. Sailing at 9 knots NNW, the « Tres Hombres » rounded the northwest corner of Denmark in the morning of the 8th of August and headed East. Copenhagen was reached on the 13th after days of changing winds.
