Re: finally leopard seals

15:30 GMT, 08 February, 53�33.1 S 066�53.9 W, still en route to Punta
Arenas (PA)

We're about 88 nautical miles from the eastern entrance to the Straits
of Magellan where we'll pick up a Chilean pilot who will guide us to
Pratt Pier in PA. We're scheduled to arrive tomorrow morning at 10:30
GMT (07:30 local time). The crossing of the Drake Passage was not as
bumpy as it was on the way down, though I still wouldn't recommend it
for a Sunday afternoon sail. Everyone is looking forward to a coule of
days on land, and for about 8 folks this is the end of their cruise.
Their replacements will join us in PA. I'll be posting some pictures
from the first leg after we arrive PA tomorrow.
