    Chilean Anchorage Notes....

    I found two typos involving place names ( Mani's Notch and Canal Thompson ) on pages 70 and 111 , nothing serious. Revised PDF can be either viewed or downloaded here... https://docdro.id/XkjVQ7H

    Chilean Anchorage Notes....

    You could follow in Tilman's wake.. and cross this ... the southern icefield. Quite a few good climbing spots.... Caleta Beauleau in Seno Pia is a good starting point. Olla isn't bad. Cross country sking on Isla Navarino seems popular. Hoste and Gordon probably good also. I'm not really the best person to ask. I know which anchorages are close to glaciers... but not what the ski-ing prospects are like.

    Thankee.... no that isn't a dead sheep... is a rock... In the north... north of 40ºS.... cordero is V expensive... https://www.jumbo.cl/lomito-de-cordero-simunovic-500-g/p I'll let you do your own exchange conversion.... In the south its well priced honest tucker... In the middle ... no sheep... Favourite anchorages? I have a few .... they are not in the pdf thingo.... don't want to give away too many secrets.....

    Chilean Anchorage Notes....

    Thank you. Its designed to be read along with the RCC Chile guide and the 'Italian Book' which while very good as pilotage notes just have little mud maps and some scenic photos.. Some anchorages are impossible to photograph in a worthwhile manner. I now have a drone but a good drone flying day is a good sailing day.

    G'day Alby..Jeremy packed up his family and went back to SA a few years ago... restaurant still has the same chef.. but not quite the same. Been discovering plenty of other top restaurants... Bumped into Carlos in Valdivia in Sept and enjoyed his hospitality - again - when we were in Anto. All cities are fundamentaly shite... you just have to find the nice bits...

    Things are rather quiet down on the campo ahora... 'We decided to move back to Chile by March 2019, .... The documents needed to bring our cat from Brazil to Chile were: - A vet health certificate stating that the cat was healthy and fit to travel. This needed to be from a Brazilian veterinary. - Up-to-date rabies vaccine (or rabbies vaccine blood test, which was needed to get her to Portugal in the first place); - An export permit from the Brazilian agricultural service. There's a standard for each country, and the officer has it available. The Brazilian agricultural office usually takes a few days to prepare this, so plan accordingly. The actual trip was very uneventful. This wasn't Bisteca's first flight, and she slept through both of them. We arrived in São Paulo on a Friday, spent a week there, got her new documents and then flew to Chile. Her papers were inspected both in Brazil and on Chile, and she was released to go with us without any further hiccups. We didn't pay any import fees on either country.' That is from here.. so is recent info.. https://www.allchile.net/viewtopic.php?f=40&t=17286

    Cats.... http://chile.alloexpat.com/chile_information/pets_to_bring_into_chile.php Should be simple if coming from NZ. Not least because of length of voyage getting there. Also .. Australia, NZ and Chile are much of a muchness as far as quarantine is concerned... all three are pretty much disease free.. no foot and mouth etc.... All three are well isolated from their neighbours.. AU and NZ by sea... Chile by the Pacific to the west, the Andes to the east , the Atacama to the north and ice and snow to the south. Be aware of the SAG rules re yacht quarantine ... 48 hours notice and on arrival much the same as NZ and Oz... not that you will have much fresh stuff after 40 days at sea.. Met an Oz yacht with cats some years ago.. they didn't mention any dramas.

    and he has a profound dislike for Puerto Montt.... The marinas around Valpo / Vina del Mar are off the scale expensive.... down south not so much... with the one in Puyuhuapi being a notable exception... $CH36,000 a day back in 17...eeek!!!. In Valdivia in October I was paying $CP12500 a day casual rate for a sub 12 metre boat... Williams in 2018 was I think $CP8000..... Must ask my man in Montt what current rates are there.....

    A note... That is designed to be used alongside the 'Italian Book', the RCC guide, Admiralty Pilot etc.... Currently working on adding photos of all the anchorages which will make it a little less dry but that may take time.... Anyone seen the OP?
