Piriapolis

21 October 2009 | Piriapolis, Uruguay

Piriapolis is a pretty resort town in Uruguay. It is popular among foreign yachts for its haulout facilities.

I stayed in Punta del Este for a day, where two of my new crew, Matt and Ted came aboard with the assistance of the ever-helpful Yacht Club Punta del Este. We then day-sailed in very pleasant weather to Piriapolis, then Montevideo (port of Buceo).

Sailing with experienced crew is a lot easier than singlehanding :).
