As we entered the Straits of Magellan yesterday morning the promise of dry land was a welcoming thought. And for a good part of the day it seemed likely that just after lunch we would dock and depart for our first foray into South America. I say seemed, because as we progressed through the straits, along the approximately 80 mile journey from the pilot pickup to the port, the weather conspired against us. To dock apparently the wind needed to be below 40 knots. Leaving the pilot station this seemed easy, the sun was up and it was a calm morning, if a little chilly.
