Tierra del Fuego – 05 February 2018

Land! What a pleasure, after 5 days at sea. Cape Horn is far off in the west – the wind was just not right to go any closer to it. For the moment, the wind has, at least, taken a bit of a break. It is „only“ blowing with 20 knots – from the north, of course. Time to get into more sheltered waters. The next storm is supposed to be just around the corner. The low pressures are passing through one by one these days, not taking a rest at all.

It feels great to see land again, green islands under a blue sky. The sun is warming, and we spend hours sitting on deck without many layers. Black-browed Albatrosses and Shags are flying near-by, dolphins follow us for a while … life on a boat can be so good!
