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.
Yup, it is not a gentle area.

We are currently alongside at AFASyN in Ushuaia. I repaired the Lewmar engine linkage today with extra spares I laid-in the last time it failed. We are waiting for a reply from Lewmar on the reparability of the windlass, and looking at alternatives, which, as you know are very few down here.
