Finis Terrae

literally, the end of the earth. Also, my hotel in Punta Arenas, the southernmost city in the world. I´m writing this email with the last gasps of high(er) speed internet. Off to the warehouse at 12 today for ECW (extreme cold weather) gear and then an all-hands meeting at 2pm. Moving in tonight for good and assuming all goes well, setting sail tomorrow for the Straits of Magellan and the Southern Ocean beyond.


  1. Hi Chris,

    Cara and I just read your blog- how very exciting! I look forward to tracking your adventures.


  2. We do so hope that you are able to capture an image of the cape!

  3. Good luck on your trip! I'll be putting on my thinking cap and trying to keep up. Hope you get some good data...

  4. Can you bring home any of that extreme cold weather gear? It's been cold in Beantown lately! Glad you made it safely.
