A Premature and Annoying End

No sooner had they arrived at the base camp, whence they were to set off by kayak towards the North of the Antarctic Peninsula, but one of the members of the team had dislocated his shoulder.
At the last moment, the Chilean Guillermo Parra had been included in Christian Donoso's expedition thanks to some financial support from Vertical Magazine.
And on 7 November, after arriving without let or hindrance in Ushuaia, the trio was getting ready to go through the famous Drake Passage that leads to the Antarctic Peninsula's shores. Despite a strong wind, they had disembarked at the base camp area without any problem.
But the following day, 12 November, Chistian Donoso informed us that Willie Parra had just dislocated his shoulder and that the expedition had to be aborted.
