Canal Bal­le­nero to Cale­ta Maci­as – 16 March 2018

Canal Bal­le­nero, Wha­lers’ Strait, was just one of many chan­nels that we are pas­sing the­se days. Canal O’Brien, Bahia Deso­la­da … you name it. Unknown pla­ces, names that sound like adven­ture.

We have to make some miles now. We have got 25 days altog­e­ther, a lot of time, but also a total of more than 2000 miles. Stun­ning sce­ne­ry all the way around us. The wea­ther lives up to its Pata­go­ni­an repu­ta­ti­on of being wet and win­dy, but still, we get our lovely moments of sun and patches of blue sky, stun­ning light sur­roun­ded by a sce­ne­ry that might remind one of Green­land or Nor­way, but without losing its very own cha­rac­ter.

The anchor goes down in yet ano­t­her beau­ti­ful Cale­ta, one of the­se litt­le natu­ral har­bours which were obvious­ly made for ships like hours. The shore­li­nes are fas­te­ned to wind-bea­ten trees, giving us a calm night des­pi­te the strong wind.
