Lin and Larry Pardey just came back from there in the last year I think. They have a web site at (www.landlpardey) and are making the rounds of boatshows in the US and Canada this winter. I don''t know if they answer random e-mails, but maybe its worth a try. I also believe Beth Leonard and Evans Starzinger were in the Straits of Magellan on their Van de Stadt 47 last year. They had some articles in Cruising World last March and on Sailnet as well.
