After solving a lot of small problems Arek is making a pause due to 13 and will try to get zarpe tomorrow.

Whole material in polish on

In short. There were problems with custom office, an emergency raft etc.

But Arek will manage. I know it

At 18.10 UTC Arek started from Puenta Arenas.

Hi is driving to Puerto Williams. 307 miles. Should be there after approx. 50-60 hours.

At 21:22 Warsaw time I got the message from his lady that explona
auto-pilot is working very well. Now he is over the overage and we
wait for info from Puerto Williams.

Arek is in Puerto Williams but the weather is bad. Tomorrow evening should be better and he like to go. He meet some Polish in the port and is with them. Tomorrow should come more information. All in boat works and is OK.

OK. I will pass your wishes to him.

Unfortunately zarpe is not enough. Arek got permission from local authorities but not from the local weather yesterday.

Wind was blowing 40-50 kn and in some moments 90 kn, so Arek must wait.

Next better weather forecast is for Thursday.

PS. excellent polish

First of all Arek thanks for wishes and like to give his compliments to RibNet forum Users !

Newest information from "armada" is that he must still wait. Wind on Horn is more than 40kn. He should come tomorrow morning again to "armada" for next forecast. Probably better situation can come in next 48-72 hours.
