Water, water. below the boat and above our heads. looking at the raining maps It looks like Brittany: It rains only twice a month there , one time three weeks, one time six days. Except that here, it rains less, because the rain 

 doesn't reach our heads all the time because of the wind. 

Normally we can see lots of animals as we sail thru wildlife reserves.- 

Here is one of the Patagonian anchorage, not a ripple but 55 knots in the Canal just behind the Hill 

Gust to 65 knots according to the weather station. On the wrong side of this hill three Argentineans ended with the crabs on their 30 plastic boat. Better get on a nice strong boat. 

We reached that cove, after tackling for two hours with the storm jib, 4 reef in the main and the engine. We wanted to go the wrong way.

But , later, in the tiny cove , with heater, slippers, good wine and cassoulet, that's was paradise!

In Patagonia, when the engine doesn't work, you fix it! or you go in the right way

The grass field above the boat lies on former Patagonians Indians campsites.

 

Other typical anchorage, Winds of 45 knots, shake the trees and sweep the Bay 100 yards behind the boat.
