In 2011 Mike Powell, a landlubber with a camera, went aboard his brother’s boat UHURU, an Oyster 62, for two months. He headed south from the Falkland Islands, across the Drake Passage to the Antarctic peninsula, around the Horn and up into Chilean Patagonia. During the trip the crew used all their toys, experienced great sailing, scuba diving, ice climbing up mountains and skiing down them, and fly fishing in Chile via horseback. This story has been shared with sailors and yacht clubs both in the US and UK and was featured on the cover of UK’s Yachting Magazine.
