Neither Chile nor Argentina or Brazil ask for a Visum. In case of doubts,
please inform yourself at the consulat in charge.
Chile and Argentina do not ask for special vaccination. It would be could
though, to be protected against Tetanus.
In Argentina as in Chile you can pay with $ US. Creditcards are widely
accepted, to pay and draw money with. More difficult is cashing travellers
checks. They mostly get accepted, but the exchange rate is not very good
For Falklands it's best to take English pounds along which are accepted..
Buying pounds on Falklands is about 30% more expensive.
Since we mostly anchor in remote places, you won't " need" a lot of
money to spend.
Storage room on the boat is limited, please use a backpack or a foldable
bag to travel with. Each cabin provides a locker big enough to store clothes
and cameras, so you don't have to keep your belongings in a suitcase.
The medicin cabinet on Board contains medication for first aid and more
serious cases. We ask you though, to bring your personal medication along,
which you would take in case of a flu, upset stomachs, headaches, seasickness.
Against seasickness, there is a variety of medication availabel. Please ask
Even if the sun is not always out, please take sunblock lotion for skin and
lips along as well as sunglasses.
On board we have 12 and 24 volts. In port or with the generator on board
running there is a 220 v supply as well.
We are quite well equiped with tapes,CD's and literature about sailing
regions and entertainment, but it would be nice if you brought some of your
music and books along.
