This is the first shaking leg. We enter the roaring forties kindom. We will not by-pass our first couple of storms; call them  serious or dreadful according to your mood. Hopefully, we will meet the first wandering albatross, and they will leave Argonaut III in one year. 

Attention, during this leg, sailing the Canal towards Ushuaia , the most southern town on earth, there is no glaciers accessible with the boat. It is the warmer part of the canal, even so the polar underwear are recommended. Glaciers can be reach on the eastern part of the Canal, after the town of Ushuaia.
