Christmas in Ushuaia !
The last leg south, from Puerto Deseado to Ushuaia in the Canal Beagle was a comfortable one. Light winds and many hours motoring. However we arrived safe and sound without accidents but short on diesel.
In Deseado we had the pleasure of meeting Gustavo and his family. They helped us with local knowledge and practicalities and even took us sightseeing on the pampas. They contributed to a very nice stay.
Arriving in the Beagle Canal was impressing. The Canal itself, more than 100 nm long and enclosed with high alpine summits partly covered with snow.
It has been a long sail down from Norway,- 8500 nm since we left our homeport the 25.July. Without any accidents or problems we arrived 3 days before schedule the 19.December. After 5 month on the go, I now look forward to a comfortable 3 week stay , well moored along a solid pier.
Medio January,- Villvind will depart for Cape Town in South Africa after a short visit in Chilean waters.
Once more; -Merry Christmas to all of you !
All the best from the crew on Villvind !
