Issuma: Puerto Montt, Chile

A few weeks back Richard Hudson and crew Max made the journey from Easter island to Chile.  About six hundred miles south of Santiago is the city of Puerto Montt. A city of 150,000 it is beautiful now but at 41 S and 73 W it is due south of New York and at comparable latitude.  The weather turns cold and wet soon. Like Irish winter - high of 50 F, low of 38 F is the average in July.  It is at the north end of a great Gulfs of Ancud and Corcovado about 700 miles north of Cape Horn - a landmark I expect Issuma to pass on its way south. - gwc
