14-Dec-2003 -- After passing the Confluence Point 55°S,067°W our ship sailed through the channels around Tierra del Fuego. Coming from the west, we were sailing through the Cockburn Channel and passed a glacier at the slops of Mount Sarmiento.
Heading north towards Punta Arenas, I expected that the Captain will hit the Confluence Point but he missed it by just 750m, so this visit must be regarded as incomplete.
Here I took the photos:
South: Magdalena Strait and Tierra del Fuego with the cloud covered Mount Sarmiento in the background.
Northeast: Paso Froward with the Island of Capitan Aracena on the left.
West: Dawson Island
North: Peninsula Brunswick
The photo that shows the Magellan Strait was taken a while after the previous four. It matches a bit with the north view photo of the first visit.
Photo no. 8 shows Cape Froward, the southern most part of mainland America.
