Thanks.  With the photos that's an interesting read even though I have no plans to go to Chile.

I do not understand and was too frightened to click on the link

 

apart from that a perfect post

For me (firefox browser) open pdf in browser...i.e. no automatic download. Seems safe and informative for those interested in Chile...so I will choose to download.

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.

It’s Cisco.  He may eat spam and not be pretty, but he’s certainly not a spammer, etc.

Downloaded, thank you.  Compiling all that must have taken quite a bit of time, well done!  *CLAPS* 

If you had to choose one, which would be your favourite anchorage and why?

I like Caleta Damien, because it's a 'good honest anchorage'.  :D  Page 72, is that a dead sheep?

It's fantastic that you note the availability and general location of fresh water supply at many of the anchorages.

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.....

I’d love to know which anchorages might offer easy access to glaciers, etc. for skiing (i.e., skin up/ski down).  )Another reason to cruise Chile in the winter.)

The more I look at that dead sheep... the more it looks like a dead sheep .... but  is a rock covered in some sort of lichen...

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.

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...

Just wanted to say thanks for posting this.  I downloaded and read the whole thing while trying to follow along with Google Earth.  Sailing from BC down to Chile is definitely on the 10 year plan.
