A warm welcome for our new member Erwin Graf from Switzerland, who joined us on the clean up on Aconcagua and climbed over 6000 m! – Thanks all for the comments, – thats real energy for us!
Xmas on Pachamama with Valea, Brigitte, Carolina and Hernan was just beautiful! Valea made the Xmas decorations herself. We got wonderful presents from our friends and family. There were many 6837 surprises. Thanks to Tom and Vicky on Sunstone for the book about trimming sails. Now we hope to be even faster! A present was also to meet the Le Lec family, who just crossed the Pacific. On Xmas day we went to a nice beach just on the other side of the river Valdivia.
After Xmas life goes on: I needed a day to repair the toilet, that was blocked since Galapagos, while the girls were creating master pieces. On the last day of the year we went to climb and clean volcano Villarica (see report of Marissa). In the evening we were invited to eat a sheep and to celebrate New Year with Gabi, Wolfgang and other sailers from the Patagonien net (8146 kHz).
