For boat lovers, some info about the "Mayflower" and the history of the original "H.M.S. Victory".
(The ancestors of VICTORY's Captain, the Pilgrims, were aboard the "Mayflower")


                               

Have you rounded Cape Horn, watched enormous slab of ice fall from giant glaciers and then quaffed a drink with millenium- year - old ice?
Take a sailing Adventure to Chile and you can do this and more.  
            
Chile will never provide tourism for the masses. It's too remote for many tourists and the sea is too cold for bathers. This incredible country'll
always be for a select & exclusive minority:

those who seek beauty, adventure and something delightfully off the beaten path. Sail the "Uttermost Part of the earth " with it's awesome   be auty of glaciers, fjords, waterfalls and wildlife.
                 
In "Little Antarctica"; Tierra Del Fuego, We navigate glacial etched flat water channels and wonderful fjords outlined by exquisite dense green forests.

All the best,

Captain Ben Garrett
