What was Freya's take?...of the two comments on the Blog, she wasn't one of them that I could see.ken_vandeburgt said:Interesting question. Justine and Barry are paddling around Isla Grande in Tierra del Fuego. They started in Punta Arenas and, after two section, they are in Ushuaia. Now they are going to Punta Arenas by vehicle and paddling counter clockwise to Ushuaia.
Hence the question on Justines blog: "The rules of circumnavigation: Are there any? Do we make them up to suit our purpose? Does anyone care?"
Interesting to read Freya's take on the question too.

Peter brought me some news of “the competition” today ) – Justine and Barry, who were aiming to become the first people to circumnavigate Tierra del Fuego, turned around their second leg of the trip and are now paddling south from Punta Arenas to Ushuaia where the had spent a few days. Hey, guys, you are kicking yourself out of the league!!! This is as if your are doing two times downhills instead of the uphill climb…well, it’s your trip. But nothing for the records…
I can fully understand this decision, only crazy people are paddling north ! Their main goal is to take good footage for the next TITS movie and to have a good time. Not everyone is as stubborn and ambitious as I am… They had the “live” report of the four Argentine guys who just paddled that leg in this direction, and my own really not too motivating blog entries from me paddling the other way…Amazingly, I exactly had this vision today before I got the news, as they stayed so long in Ushuaia! I wish you good luck…and think of me who was crawling hard the other way!
