Arriving Puerto Williams
1 March 2006    
Strong westerly winds propelled us across the final leg of the Drake Passage and into the Beagle Channel and Chilean port of Puerto Williams.
With 3 sails aloft the Evohe was cruising at 11 kts so it was no surprise to arrive earlier than expected into our destination. A large front has moved towards the Antarctic Peninsula which would have made leaving there any later impossible until the system moves through. We will be trekking in the peaks above Puerto Williams for the next three days and will post another dispatch on the 5th, the day we return to Ushuaia.

Until then, this is Guy and the AC team preparing to kiss the land!
