News Release from Tierra Del Fuego, Chile:

At the very tip of the South American continent now sails the VICTORY, a 75 foot "William Garden design" replica of a nineteenth century wooden cargo schooner. Aboard this comfortable floating base one may find groups of SEA KAYAKERS and ADVENTURE TOURISTS that have come to view and explore the serene glacier filled fjords -lined with wild forests, snowcapped peaks and trout filled streams - where the Andes meet the sea.

For those coming from a hurried and modern life, it's like going back in time; it is also a breathtaking and unforgettable experience - being among the unspoiled beauty of "The Uttermost Part Of The Earth".

Puerto Williams, capital of the Chilean Territory of Antarctica and ancient camp ground for the now almost extinct Yagan Canoe Indians, has a small "crime free" population of 2000. It is the Southernmost town in the world located at latitude 54 deg. 56 min. South and longitude 67 deg. 37 min. West, only 60 miles from Cape Horn. Gold is still being found in the surrounding hills!

Ben Garrett (a former electronic engineer from California) and Monica, his Chilean wife, have been navigating the region of Tierra Del Fuego for 9 years. Their beautiful new well equipped tall mast ship is based at the picturesque Puerto Williams Yacht Club, situated on the Beagle Channel.

This roomy schooner takes 7 to 10 day Adventure and Sea Kayak excursions, marking a course to the glaciers and fjords by way of the same channel which Charles Darwin navigated aboard the sailing vessel BEAGLE in the early 1800's. The VICTORY is so similar a ship that it starred as the BEAGLE in a recent documentary.

Exploring these magnificent glacier regions and fjords by foot and/or by Sea Kayak excursions, appreciating very old Yagan Indian settlements and artifacts, camping and barbecues of Patagonian lamb on the beach along with trout fishing are only part of the itinerary. Accommodations are for a minimum of two groups of two, with a maximum of 10 passengers.

Expeditions to Antarctica, Cape Horn and South Georgia are also available. Contact Ben Garrett, who has the world's most southern Internet connection at: Box 70, Puerto Williams, Tierra Del Fuego, Chile. Phone 5661-621010, Fax 5661-621092, mailto:sailing@victory-cruises.com,
