One of the salmon breeding cages, covered with a net

Pos: here
Loc: Punta Huron
Acc: tent
Dist: 46,5 km
Start: 8:10 End: 16:40

A long crossing, but easy southerly winds, seas and mostly sunshine with great visibility, really nothing to complain about. About 10 km before the coast,  thick fog came up, and all visibility was gone! Good to have a GPS. Soon the fog got licked up be the sun again, and even the light breeze was down. My last easy paddling day in Fjordland apart from tomorrow!

The floating base station of the many salmon breeding cages

I saw two times whales again today, once huge spouts close to the coast at the end, and then suddenly the spouting noise was just behind me! I’m wondering how far north I’ll be seeing whales and penguins…penguin colonies I only saw in Argentine. Not even a single penguin on shore here in Chile, but many daily afloat. And the daily seals and dolphins at play are always everywhere. So no lack of wildlife, though I may be a bit worn describing them!

The way out to the open sea I probably have to watch the tide being with me, the gap between Punta Barranco and Punta San Gallan looks narrow and shows a few tidal rips before. It may be funny!

But first I’ll have two or three days off in Puerto Montt! Busy times as usual, getting a new Navy permit (I’m hoping they’ll make the permit valid all the way to Valparaiso, so  that I don’t have to apply again on all the other stations in between!), extending my visa for Chile, preparing my arrival in Valaparaiso and stay in Santiago plus flight home, picking up two forgotten pieces of clothing at NOMADS of TH SEAS, buying new gas cans (the old one just lasts until two more days maybe!), shopping for food (I eventually just had enough!) and packing the same, uploading pictures with subtitling and inserting into the blog, e-mailing, calling home, Google Earth views, the same old story being in town.

The last few paddling days were all reasonable short and easy weather, plus my recovering days on the boat, so I am worn, but it could be worse. I’m just looking forward to the open sea again! Not to the possibility being trashed in the surf though 🙂
