This first trip to the Caribbean was combined with the shipping of a full hold of 45 cubic meters of humanitarian aid goods to Haiti after the earthquake. Discharging this cargo of medicine, beds, wheel chairs, water, clothes and many other things donated by Dutch people, was a very fulfilling act.
The point in doing this was strongly expressed by the faces of those who received the goods.The next step was delivering a cargo from the World Food Program to Jacmel, Haiti. After this stop the ship sailed off to Santo Domingo to load fine Dominican rum.
An unforeseen incident delayed this step of the plan when at the southern tip of Hispaniola the t’gallant mast (the top part) broke, right in the middle of a stormy night! Captain and crew decided to find a safe anchorage and repair the damage there. The Bahia de Las Aguilas, close to the town of Pedernales, turned out to be the best they could have wished for: a remote, sandy beach with some scattered fishermen, a single bar, and coincidentally an ideal filming location.
While the crew fixed the mast, the new captain Andreas went to Santo Domingo in search of good rum, which finally resulted in the first Fairtransport rum in the world, Tres Hombres Gran Añejo Rum 2010!! As the captain returned, the ship left for the harbour of Santo Domingo, loaded 3000 bottles of this marvellous spirit into the hold of the ship and went on the first rum run of this millennium. With the westerly winds coming from only three depressions and a constant full press of canvas, the ship made it to Calais in only 33 days and coming home in June 2010 to a great welcome party in Den Helder!
