Photos from Mar Del Plata and the sail south to the Falkland s..
Below are a select few from the good times in Mar Del Plata, or ‘Mar Del’ as the locals call it…… and some shots of the passage south to the Falklands.
Juan, Leo and us at Leo’s pub…. The start of the endless hospitality they and many others showed us during our stay
Leo and Matt… the night progresses…
Juan and the usual suspects….
Below are a few shots from a great Sunday BBQ at Leo’s parents place. The Argentinians know how to put on a BBQ as we were fed our body weight in meat. We also gave the locals a few tips on Rugby and Aussie Rules….. Leo’s nieces loved it!!
Taken out to lunch on our last day…. Fantastic!!
A few of the locals near the marina….
Dropping off Juan and Andrea before sailing on the 4th November. Note how ‘not’ overloaded the dingy is!
Departure photo from Mar Del Plata. Note how hot and sunny it is… oh how that changed so very soon.. ;)
Below are a few shots on the passage south. Some great shots of the many companions having fun all around us and some hitch-hikers. Note how colder we look as we go south!!
Hanging off the bow. They came up and let us touch them…. Magic!!!!
Nigel hard at work……
Matt working even harder……
