Cape Horn

28 January 2015 | Cape Horn

We made it: After 5 days in the Drake Passage we finally sighted the legendary and impressive rock of Cape Horn – the 1st time we see land in 5 days and the first time we see land without ice and snow in almost 5 weeks !

You might wonder: How was the mighty Drake Passage this time? Drake Lake or Drake Shake? It was not too bad, but pretty bad. With winds up to 35 knots (over 60 km/h) and waves up to 4 m there was enough to make us sick and very happy to be back on the other side…

Another 100 nautical miles to Ushuaia in calmer waters and then a big asado awaits us...
