Sail Cargo Vessel Tres Hombres sailing out of Falmouth after unloading a barrel of rum for us, which has become the very first fairtransport rum in the UK called New Dawn Rum. The Tres Hombres is pioneering a renaissance in shipping of the finest quality fair trade goods around the Atlantic, under sail, without an engine.
Bessie Ellen is Britain’s last wooden coasting ketch still under sail. She traded during the final era of sail when these ships were an everyday sight in the small ports and harbours throughout Britain.
Last week I was lucky enough to sail on her from Fowey to Falmouth alongside The 32 meter schooner “Tres Hombres” which has been transporting fair trade goods around the world and coming to port to deliver a barrel of 15 year old 'New Dawn' fine rum, distilled by Oliver and Oliver and Traded by the New Dawn Traders.
