After a great 4 days on Easter Island, and a 6 hour flight back to Santiago, I had 1 day to pack up all my stuff and take the 10 hour bus to Valdivia on May 31.

I was picked up at the terminal by Alex Wopper, the owner of Alwoplast, the company building the Chris White designed "Atlantic" 57' foot catamaran named "Espiritu Sante" (ES for short).

Dale arrived 3 hours later from Philadelphia.

We got to Alwoplast on a cold (almost winter here) dark, rainy and foggy night to see ES sitting at the dock all lit up by floodlights. She looked fabulous.

There is still about a week of work still to be done...sails to come, lines to be threaded, cabinetry details to be finished, and finally the testing of all the systems - navigation, radar, sail, engines, water maker, fridge and freezer, and once the sails are installed, we take ES out for her first test sail.

Dale and I expect to be enroute to San Diego, California some time mid June.
