We Have Returned to Patagonia

After a relaxing four-month break back in Vancouver while winter happened in southern Chile, we have returned to Sequitur in Puerto Montt. We are now preparing her for a two or three months meander down through the Patagonian channels to Tierra del Fuego, where we intend turning left and heading toward Cape Town. Sources of supplies are extremely sparse from here southward, so we're stocking-up here for four months.

Our latest blog post is more related to things back home and to family, than it is with boating; however, our regular boating posts will resume very shortly as we get fully into cruising again.

Cheers,
Michael

Michael,

I just looked at your blog and look forward to posts about your sail down the coast. We just decided to make the coast of South America our future cruising grounds (way into the future) so I have begun my research.

Is this where you normally cruise?

Thanks,

Donna

Michael - I'll read further back to see if you've talked about this much - but what do you think of Puerto Montt?

Your blog is great - thanks for keeping us up to date. Oh, and I can't wait for your Horn rounding story!!! That should make Hunter very proud.

Nice to hear from you Michael.. hope you enjoyed our late but extended summer.... Did you find it difficult being 'boatless'?

These days we don't 'normally cruise' anywhere. Or maybe it is better to say we normally cruise everywhere; we just haven't made it to a lot of the places yet.

Cheers,
Michael

Smack; So far I have said very little about Puerto Montt; the weather was ugly and we were quite rushed when we arrived here in June. Now that we're back a week and a half, we have had a lot more opportunity to look around and get to know it. I'll have some good info in the next couple of blog posts.

Cheers,
Michael

Faster... For the first month it was bliss, as we shook-loose the trauma of nine months of third-world deprivation. By mid-summer some twinges of boatlessness had emerged, but by then we were fully engaged in preparing to return and accumulating huge heaps of stuff to haul back to Sequitur.

Cheers,
Michael
