Celebrating Sail Shipped Cargo in Falmouth

New Dawn Traders welcome Sailing Cargo Vessel Tres Hombres on her arrival in Falmouth (UK) this April.

  The world’s only trans-Atlantic, engine-less cargo vessel, Tres Hombres, will arrive in Falmouth on 16th April 2014 as part of its fifth consecutive journey from Europe to the Caribbean and back.
  Trading in the finest ethical products all along her route, Tres Hombres is leading the way towards reviving an industry in shipping goods under sail.
  This beautiful 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.
  Her belly is filled to the brim with rum and cocoa (the raw ingredients of Tres Hombres Rum and Tres Hombres Chocolate), coffee, molasses, wine and Grenada Chocolate Co. chocolate bars to be delivered for sale in Europe.
  On board this year Tres Hombres was joined by representatives of New Dawn Traders and working together, the two companies are researching new trade opportunities. On this voyage they picked up samples of Norwegian Stock Fisk, Portuguese olive oil, and Amazonian nut and fruit oils and butters. There is also a barrel of rum to be unloaded in Falmouth and bottled locally as the first UK fair transport New Dawn Rum!
