Patagonia & Antarctica pics and travel log

Perhaps this is not the correct spot for this post. I am not in any way affiliated with Rocna anchors but Craig Smith from NZ has created a great website detailing their trip to Pat. & Ant. with AMAZING pictures you should all see, since most of us will not likely got there.

Patagonia Photo Journal (1)

Interestingly there is quite a bit of anchoring by tying to boulders on the rocky shores as well as using their anchor.
After the reading I have done on the area I am not surprised at how inventive they had to be when stabilizing their boat for the night.

Take your time and browse through ALL the pages on both Patagonia & Antarctica as it is a good waste of time, for those who have it.

Full disclosure: I stumbled upon this link at another forum and was (of course) not there when the pics where taken, nor have I ever been there except in my mind from my comfortable couch.

Enjoy.

PS - the reason this post may belong here is because the southern latitudes require certain attitudes to actually contemplate such a venture. L&A members may be put off by the naked penguins and skuas but there are no bikinis to be seen in any of this.

Sequitur is on a distinguished road
Next week we are hauling Sequitur in Callao, Peru to prepare her for the continuation of our journey southward. After the appropriate time exploring Chilean and Argentine wine country from Valpariso, we anticipate arriving in northern Patagonia at height of the southern summer in January or February. The following summer we anticipate gunkholing around Cape Horn and watching for a weather window further south. These photos add to the anticipation.
