Bit of an anchoring epic there Michael.

Peter and I anchored alone in Olla a few years ago. I rowed ashore with the shorelines, and still remember looking back out to the center of the bay where Peter was trying to position the boat. She was heeling 30 degrees with bare poles and being blasted downwind to the same area you ended up on, despite engine in full reverse with self-pitching prop. I could paddle the dinghy with one oar near the trees, but out in the bay right under the katabatics falling down the cliff sides you're just at the mercy of the winds.

Kiwi Roa should turn up in Ushuaia or Puerto Williams in the next little while, do say hello if you see her.
