THE CAPE HORN ROAD

After our visit to Australia and New Zealand the three Dutch Tall Ships will sail around Cape Horn. 5400 seamiles with only water and 1 famous rock! Without using the engine during the last 3000 miles of the voyage, we sail from 50 degrees South in the Pacific, to 50 degrees South in the South Atlantic, around Cape Horn. A voyage for people with salt in their veins.

See here remarkable old footage of a historical square-rigger sailing around Cape Horn in ~1935. Footage by Alan Villiers. The video takes 15 mins - but worth ever minute!
