Puerto Williams, Chile

New country, new phone:  +56 982074436.
Imvubu sailed the ca 25 miles from Ushuaia, Argentina to Puerto Williams, Chile Thursday the 26. On arriving we joined about twenty other yachts tied up to the Micalvi Yacht Club and rafted 3 or 4 deep. The Micalvi is an old ship that was purposefully grounded in a narrow inlet and now serves as the local yacht club (though all the boats but one are from elsewhere). Their claim to be the world's most southerly yacht club is probably not an exaggeration.  Formalities were completed at the port captain's office. Now we wait for a favorable weather window to cross The Drake Passage which will take us to The South Shetland Islands and The Antarctic Peninsula.
