SONABIA WAITING FOR US

Some of the yachts that remained in Puerto Williams during COVID could sail to the glaciars and Antarctica. Other headed north west, towards Chile.

None could sail to Ushuaia, Argentina. Argentina and Uruguay are still closed for the yachts.

Sonabia remained in Micalvi, waiting for us.

NO COVID In Puerto Williams

Last week, zero COVID cases. Thanks to the sanitary cordon, extensive vaccination and the responsible behavior of the people.

The sanitary cordon is removed since June 04 2021. For the next month, a PCR is needed to travel to the Island.

COVID IN CHILE

In spite of an extensive vaccination campaign (more than 70% of target population is vaccinated) Chile faces a high number of COVID cases.

Careless behavior during the austral summer? Variants? inefficient travel sanitary controls? Type of vaccine ? Anyway, here are the results

SONABIA 2 SAILING SOON

Under construction in Socoa, Basque Country.  Thanks to the COVID we could work on the boat. Soon on the water.
