After waiting for the validation of our vaccines, Sonabia 2 could enter Chile on January 27, and sail to the Antarctic Peninsula from February 2 to 24.
Before leaving we changed the original rudders for lenga wood pieces. Simpler and stronger.
Sonabia 2 fulfilled all the expectations, during the Drake Passage crossing (very strong on the way back) as well as during sailing and mooring in the Antarctic, often among floating ice.
From a different viewpoint, the trip has been … entertaining. I will tell you the story in future posts.
