This video clip (below) of Dagmar Aaen was shot during an Ocean Change expedition, while enroute from Ushuaia, Argentina to Piriapolis, Uruguay.

Dagmar Aaen is a sturdy old time vessel originally built to be a fishing cutter in 1931. Though recent, the footage is a great reminder of the boats and sailors of yesteryear.
