I'm finishing preparations to Cape Horn circumnavigation, from Punta Arenas on Atlantic, cape Horn, Chilean Channels, Magellan Strait and back to Punta Arenas. Beginning of AKUNA HORN EXPEDITION expedition - January 2008.
The boat: Halmatic PACIFIC 22 with ford mermaid turbodiesel, 140 HP.
The boat it is ex Deemen, and on 3-rd of December will be rebaptised with the name ONYX - brand of Akuna, the main sponsor of the Expedition.
Now the boat is undergoing minor repairs and is going to have fitted the purpose built autopilot, made by Explona. The autopilot is essential for me, as I will be sailing on my own. The boat has fitted already by Jon&Dave Henshaw from National A1 Marine the selfrighting bag (and new A-frame needed for the device). That was ordered by me when I was buying the boat from Dave.
Soon I will post some new pictures.
For now are pictures when the boat had name Deemen, courtesy of Dave Henshaw.
