Hola Richard,
what are you trying to do? Hiding from the icebergs?
We following with great interest your adventures and wish you always fair winds, and somebody else than yourself to go up the mast and fix the rigging.
Hope very much that you did not need your old wire???
It’s now a brand new ( well, nearly new) backstay on Vanoc. Many thanks again!
We are still in Buenos Aires, enjoying the opera and concert season. This week it’s the tango festival.
Next week we will “follow you north” to Uruguay. Just to keep the customs happy!
Good luck, with hugs and besos Ulla and Jo

From left to right, myself, Lucas, Yvonne and Sarah. We are going over the route north of Nain with Lucas and his wife Sarah. Yvonne, who set up the meeting, did the translating. Lucas was originally from the Quebec side of the northern Labrador peninsula (Ungava Bay), and has travelled the coast extensively, on both boats and snowmobiles.

Nain is an Inuit community, so most signs are in both Inuktitut and English.
