Sailing Back to Llanquahue

29 August 2015
Richard
A pleasant winter wind pushes Kosei (steering) and I along well.

The boat passing us is a type used commonly in Chile's extensive aquaculture industry. The ramp at the bow (front) allows loading cargo off beaches.

Our plan was to sail to Llanquahue, which has hot springs that I've visited before, then sail down Estero Comau to other hot springs which I hadn't seen. As is so often the case when sailing, especially in winter, the plan changed.
