Graham & Avril Johnson

(Dream Away 40’) – for their incredible voyage from Cape Horn to Puerto Montt, a distance of 900 miles up through the Patagonian channels almost all against headwinds. Made over a period of 7 ½ months they estimated they’d covered twice the distance and only motored twice against the winds, the strongest of which reached 70 knots. The voyage is described in wonderful detail (useful as pilotage notes!) in Flying Fish 2007/2.
