Or at least duck in to Magellan
strait, when circumnavigating?
I have been through Magellan
cruising from Punta Arenas, Chile
to Ushuia on the Argentina
side. I took a cruise
on the Rotterdam a few year ago. After Ushuia we went out to the horn itself then around the Falklands and eventually up the Rio Plata to Buenas Aires, and points onward.
We spent a day at the Ushuia port and I did notice 4 or 5 well worn looking cruising sail boats, a couple which looked to be thirty feet. I just would like to hear stories from people like these.
We were there around Mid-December and the weather
thru the straits was calm as glass. The weather
leaving the Horn onto the Falklands was a little rough with seas up to twenty feet but usually around ten. The approach from Puerto Mott, Chile
to Punta Arenas was around 6 - 10 feet most of the way.
I would enjoy hearing from people who did this crossing in a cruising sailboat, I do know that there are some cruisers out there who sail this each year.
