SANTA MARIA



Schedule Season 2009/2010



The "Santa Maria"

We sail in the channels of Fireland and in the quiet fjords that are protected by the Cordillieres . We sail around the legendary Cape Horn as soon as the weather permits.



Captain Wolf Klaus has THE SANTA MARIA available for Antarctica, Cape Horn, South Georgia and the glaciers of Tierra Del Fuego.

Wolf Kloss, one of the pioneers of the commercial Cape Horn and Antarctica charter industry, is the founder and organizer. He remains the restless and driving power of SIM and all its projects and has more than 20 years experience. With the SANTA MARIA, and 250,000 nautical miles as a Skipper, Wolf has made seven Atlantic crossings, thirteen Antarctic voyages and has sailed more than 75 times around Cape Horn.

Next to his sailing skills, Wolf is driven by his passion for alpine challenges, enthusiasm for nature’s forces and unique landscapes and for adventure.

Our Destinations


We round the legendary Cape Horn

55 degrees South - 67 degrees 17 min. West
The true baptism of all navigators!

During our sailing voyage to Cape Horn we will be offered a glimpse of how life must have been for Tierra del Fuego's original inhabitants, the Yagan Indians.

When rounding the infamous Cape Horn, our first celebratory drink will be offered to Neptune, pausing to reflect on the sailors that have sacrificed their lives to these tormented waters.

We are awed by the contrasts of the Cordillera Darwin.

Torn by glaciers that tumble down from the summits through the evergreen forests and plunge into the sea, the Cordillera Darwin is a spectacular wonderland of mountains, sea and ice. Immerse yourself in the canals of Tierra del Fuego which for 7,000 years was the homeland of the Yagan Indians.

Follow ancient canoe routes past traditional camp sites. Search for new paths, explore ice filled fiords or hike into the base of the glaciers.

We discover the eternal ice of the South Polar Sea.

We sail over the horizon to Antarctica, the mysterious White Continent. Whales, seals and penguins welcome us.

Antarctica is a ice paradise where life is bursting, waiting to surprise us.!

Trekking and mountain-climbing

White spots on the maps. Mountains without names. Discover new trails along the beaver dams, through the forests or towards the frozen summit, accompanied by colibris and condors. Choose between hiking, climbing and ice touring in differing degrees of difficulty.

Sea Kayak

The SANTA MARIA has 6 single kayaks for a 14 day trip to Cape Horn. It is about a 200 mile trip through the Murray Channel and other protected channels. The yacht will act as a mother ship for you.
The cost is about EUR 12500 for 5-6 persons.

There are neoprene Spray decks for the kayaks to make a watertight seal.
We have automatic life jackets for everybody on board the SANTA MARIA.
Decking of the kayaks consists of ropes and elastic chords arranged to taste.
More detailed information on the kayaks is at Ricardo Kruczewskis home page
http://www.geocities.com/sdkkayaks/NEKOII.html

The Yaghan people used kayaks 7,000 years ago for traveling in their environment.
Try to follow them on these traditional routes. Prepare to paddle into dark canals between silent forests, and the invigorating cold squalls off the glaciers. Overnight at well known campsites, used since primeval times.

Photo, Film or Scientific Field Work

We provide technical and logistical support to help you and your expedition realize your specific objectives.

Lodging

Centrally located in Puerto Williams, our guests house, the Bella Vista Hostal, with its friendly atmosphere and comfortable surroundings, can provide short or long term lodging. Up to 9 travelers find cozy lodging in 5 rooms, and can relax around our wood stove while admiring the Beagle Channel and the Tierra Del Fuego Mountains. All information for one's own enterprise or undertaking is available here, from other travelers and prior visitors.

Come and live this adventure with the security, comfort and hospitality we offer. Enjoy the wonders, experience the emotion.

 


The "SANTA MARIA" was designed by the technical yacht designer REINKE in Stuttgart.   She is a "Stays'l sloop"  of the "HYDRA" type.

She is 14,74 m long and weighs 18 tons. With seven bunks the ship is not overcrowded, but offers a certain degree of comfort.

Two Mercedes Diesel Engines guarantee maneuverability and reliability, the self control system is optimized for long travel. Life raft, automatic safety wests  and Life Belts, as well as all kinds of other electronic equipment increase security and comfort on board.


The thing which makes the yacht perfect for sailing at Cape Horn and in the Antarctic is the solid steel structure (5 mm), the stable Rig with a strong mast (15 m), and a firm closed deck house. Additionally a selection of small,  firm sails and the two reliable diesel engines give additional security.

Cape Horn & Darwin Range

13 days through the water world of the

Yamana Indians and a journey to the

glaciers of the Darwin Range


Day 1:
You reach Puerto Williams, the starting point of your sailing turn, via:

 a) Buenos Aires and Ushuaia

The skipper welcomes you at the AFASYN sailing club in Ushuaia Bay. The sailing yacht is either at the pontoon there or lying at anchor in the bay.

All participants should have arrived at the club by lunchtime.

After arrival on the first day of the turn, as well as on the last day, there will be a complimentary transfer from Ushuaia to Puerto Williams or respectively the other way round.
If necessary we may use a craft other than the yacht booked to run these transfers.

b) Santiago and Punta Arenas

From Punta Arenas there are the two-engine Twin-Otter or the new Antarctica Dash run by the air taxi operator DAP, which will take you across the Darwin Range into the Beagle Channel to the starting point of our expedition.

Puerto Williams (appx. 2.300 inhabitants) situated on Navarino Island is the southernmost settlement in the world. It is here that we have reached the last outpost of civilisation.

The sailing yacht will reach Puerto Williams in the afternoon of the first day of your turn.
After arrival we will make ourselves at home on the yacht, move into our berths and unpack our luggage. The cosy narrowness of the yacht’s quarters will become our home for the next fourteen days. The yacht will provide us with safety and shelter in the pristine wilderness that we are about to enter.
The technical installations as well as the safety equipment on board will be demonstrated and explained.

The last native Tierra del Fuego Indians live on Navarino Island in the small settlement of Ukika. We can visit the Martin-Gusinde-Museum to learn about the local environment and native Indian culture or else go for a little stroll and admire the nearby beaver dams.
In the evening we will be guests at the home of Wolf Kloss for a typical Tierra del Fuego asado.
A glass of pisco sour at the yacht club will round off our first evening.

Day 2:
We follow the Beagle Channel to Puerto Toro passing small „estancias“ and the wreck of a stranded freighter. 100 years ago Puerto Toro was meant to become the administrative centre of the southern section of the Tierra del Fuego archipelago. But after the gold rush Puerto Toro fell back into oblivion. Today the local fishing fleet use the harbour as a safe spot. With a bit of luck we can trade in freshly  caught “centollas”, king crabs, here.

Day 3:
Weather permitting we cross Bahia Nassau non stop. Now we procede into the heart of the Wollaston Archipelago, the Cape Horn Islands. From here it is 15 more miles to the Cape. We anchor in a protected bay and wait for suitable weather.
In case of foul weather we go to Caletta Lennox as an alternative. Around 1900 there was a gold rush here quite similar to the one in Alaska. Place names like Caletta Oro (Gold Bay) remind us of these times. Since 1995 digging has been taken up again.

Day 4:
We take the first possible chance and round the Cape. Weather permitting we pay a visit to the Chilean crew at the lighthouse in their lonely outpost. In the small chapel Stella Maris we pay our respects to the seamen who lost their lives fighting the terrifying elements at this stormy cape. In the evening we anchor 10 nm further to the north in Caletta Martial.

Day 5:
North westerly courses take us through the Franklin Channel and out of the Cape Horn Archipelago. The east coast of the Hardy Peninsula provides us with a number of protected anchorages sheltered by the Darwin Cordillera against the frequently rough westerlies. Many 19th century expeditions sought protection here to carry out their geographical and anthropological work.

Day 6:
We sail through the Murray Channel separating Hoste Island from Navarino Island. The Yamana culture was centred around this Channel. Depending on wind direction we anchor in its opening.

Day 7:
We carry on westwards, up the Beagle Channel. We pass small estancias framed by the dramatic ranges of Tierra del Fuego. The snow covered peaks get higher as the channel gradually narrows. We immerse ourselves into the calm loneliness of this deserted mountain range, the Cordillera Darwin. Anchorage is in Caletta Olla.

Day 8:
We take a walk through the pristine wilderness to the lake of the glacier with its numerous beaver dams. We carry on through the Channel along the “avenida de los glaciares” at the feet of the ice giants. In this area the glaciers stream directly into the sea. Our overnight stop is in Seno Pia, a deep fjord. The water in the fjords is well covered with drifting glacial ice.

Day 9:
We explore the fjord, take a hike to the glacier and even walk on the glacier if the weather conditions are favourable. A colony of seals makes itself well heard. Here we have reached the westernmost point of our journey.
Our way now takes us south through the Thomson Channel. At its opening called Bahia Cook we often encounter the long running swell of the Pacific Ocean. Our course turns east by 90 degrees into Seno Coloane in the Brazo Suroeste of the Beagle Channel.

Days 10 and 11:
We explore  the various fjords by boat and on foot. Here there is still a lot of unknown territory to discover. We find protection for the night in Bahia Fleuriais.

Day 12:
At lunchtime the gaucho Eugenio and his wife Esther welcome us at their estancia Canasaca. They have a few horses ready for us. Those of us who feel like it can explore the surroundings of the estancia on horseback with their son Claudio as a guide. After this we enjoy a local lunch with centollas for a starter to be followed by lamb grilled on the spit.

Day 13:
We take our leave of the majestic lonely mountain range and sail back to Puerto Williams. Back to “civilisation” the new Cape Horniers raise their glasses of the traditional pisco sour to their successful rounding of the Cape and the unforgettable experiences in the Cordillera.

The return journey is again via

  1. Ushuaia and Buenos Aires

Transfer on the yacht or by an alternative craft to Ushuaia.

  1. Punta Arenas and Santiago

The well known Twin Otter or the Dash take us back to Punta Arenas. The last views of the Beagle Channel and the Cordilliera Darwin bid us farewell from one of the last pristine nature reserves in the world.

Back to civilisation what we have experienced will seem like a dream to us.

A truly exceptional sailing area:
The Beagle Channel, Navarino Island, Cordillera Darwin, Cape Horn.
A journey into the wonderland of “Tierra del Fuego”.

The technical installations as well as the safety equipment on board will be demonstrated and explained.

The last descendents of the native Tierra, del Fuego Indians live on Navarino Island in the small settlement of Ukika. We can visit the Martin-Gusinde-Museum to learn about the local environment and native Indian culture or else go for a little stroll and admire the nearby beaver dams.
In the evening we will be guests at the home of Wolf Kloss, founder of Sea Ice and Mountain Expeditions, for a typical Tierra del Fuego asado.
A glass of pisco sour at the yacht club will round off our first evening.

Day 2:
Off we go! We sail westwards, up the Beagle Channel passing small estancias set off against the breathtaking peaks of Tierra del Fuego. We sail through the Murray Channel, which separates the Hoste from the Navarino Island. The Yamana culture was centered around this channel. With the compass pointing south we move out into Bahia Nassau. The eastern coast of the Hardy Peninsula offers us several safe coves sheltered from the often quite fierce westerly winds. Many 19th century expeditions sought protection here to carry out their geographical and anthropological work.

Day 3:
Our route takes us south across the Mantellero Channel into the heart of the Wollaston Archipelago. In Caletta Maxwell we wait for favourable conditions to round Cape Horn. Here only 15 nm separate us from the southernmost point of America.

Day 4:
We take the first possible chance and round the Cape. Weather permitting we pay a visit to the Chilean lighthouse crew at their lonely outpost. In the small chapel Stella Maris we pay our respects to the seamen who lost their lives fighting the terrifying elements at this stormy cape.
For the night we aim for Puerto Toro. A hundred years ago this place was meant to become the administrative centre of the southern part of the Tierra del Fuego Archipelago. After the end of the gold rush it fell into oblivion once again. Today the local fishing fleet use the port as a safe spot. With a bit of luck we can trade in freshly caught centollas here, the prized southern king crabs.

Day 5:
We pass a stranded vessel on the way and sail past lonely estancias. On Martillo Island there is one of the few colonies of Magellan penguins in the Beagle Channel. During the breeding season we can watch the penguins from quite close. In the afternoon we are back in Puerto Williams.
At the Micalvi yacht club the new Cape Horniers raise their glasses of traditional pisco sour to their successful rounding of the Cape.

Day 6:
A good day to sleep late, do the packing and get the return flights confirmed.

The return journey is again via

  1. Ushuaia and Buenos Aires

 

Transfer on the yacht or by an alternative craft to Ushuaia.

  1. Punta Arenas and Santiago

 

The well known Twin Otter or the Dash take us back to Punta Arenas. The last views of the Beagle Channel and the Cordillera Darwin bid us farewell from one of the last pristine nature reserves in the world.

Back to civilisation what we have experienced will seem like a dream to us.

SANTA MARIA has received Chilean Safety Certification that is renewed regularly, and is fully insured.
SANTA MARIA was designed by the German yacht builder REINKE as his HYDRA steel cutter. She is 14.74 m long and displaces 18 tons. SANTA MARIA features three cabins, making available seven berths, affording reasonable privacy for groups on extended voyages.
SANTA MARIA was designed by the German yacht builder REINKE as his HYDRA steel cutter. She is 14.74 m long and displaces 18 tons. SANTA MARIA features three cabins, making available seven berths, affording reasonable privacy for groups on extended voyages.
The steel construction (5mm), collision bulkhead, and two additional bulkheads forward and aft of the engine room, heavy rigging, enclosed wheelhouse, roller furling genoa and staysail, and an inventory of specially reinforced sails make SANTA MARIA well suited for this area.

As important as the equipment may be to guarantee success, in the end it's the spirit of the crew that make SANTA MARIA what she is. She is designed not for luxury, but for expeditions to the extreme.
