Stand-by at the entrance of the Beagles Canal
After the passage of Cape Horn on Thursday, Romain and Alex progressed in the North along the Chilean coast. As feared for a few days by Christian Dumard, the router on land, Mother Nature has decided not to give respite to our sailors who are again forced to take shelter in Cook Bay at the entrance to the Beagles Channel (south of the Strait of Magellan). This channel separates the large island of Tierra del Fuego from the islands Hoste and Navarino to the south. Its western part belongs to Chile, and its eastern part forms the boundary between Argentina to the north and Chile to the south.
The situation has not evolved favourably to consider continuing. Christian Dumard, advised them to take shelter for safety reasons in Cook Bay and take the opportunity to repair.
