NEW SLIDES FOR ALUMINUM BRIS

1979 I LEFT SWEDEN IN ALUMINUM BRIS TO THE RIGHT IN THE PICTURE

IF I REMEMBER RIGHT I SAILED THROUGH LE MAIRE STRAIGHT 13 JUNE 1980. THE DAY STARTED OUT FINE BUT TOWARDS THE EVENING THERE WAS A FULL GALE BLOWING AND A EIGHT TO ELEVEN KNOT TIDE AGAINST ME. THIS WAS BEFORE GPS AND WAS DIFFICULT. DUE TO A CONFLICT BET

THE 16 OF JUNE I ROUNDED CAPE HORN EAST TO WEST. DUE TO CORROSION I HAD TO INTERRUPT THE VOYAGE. I TURNED EAST AND SAILED TO THE FALKLAND ISLANDS WHERE I ARRIVED IN THE MIDDLE OF THE MIDVINTER NIGHT THE 21 OF JUNE. IT HAD BEEN A DARK A COLD VOYAGE.

TIED UP TO A VERY EXPOSED DOCK TO THE STRONG WINDS AND STANLY HARBORS LONG FETCH FOUR NAUTICAL MILES IF I REMEMBER RIGHT. THREE TIMES DURING MY FOUR MONTHS STAY THE WIND SPEED REACHED 100 KNOTS.
