Our hosts, Kevin LaGraff and Susan Atkins, as well as several Cruise Specialists guests continue their 72-night journey around South America. Most recently they spent time cruising Patagonia with stops in Puerto Montt and Punta Arenas. A highlight of the trip was sailing past the stunning Chilean Fjords – where the crew even went off and brought back a chunk of glacial ice as a souvenir! After the majestic time spent in Chile they had the adventure of a lifetime sailing around Cape Horn.
Susan says “The trip around Cape Horn was quite exciting. Successfully navigating this treacherous stretch of water is considered the epitome of seamanship. It is a tradition that sailors who have made the passage will wear one gold loop earring as a badge of honor.”
