Cape Horn, The Mightiest Of All Capes

  #

At the tip of South America the land is fragmented as if a large upheaval has picked up the continent and dropped it, smashing the narrow, pointed end at the bottom into thousands of small pieces. One of the smallest is right at the very bottom. It measures only 6 kilometers in length and is just over 3 kilometers wide, but itís one of the most well known islands in the world. The island of Cape Horn.

During the dark hours of Saturday night, 03:30 GMT Sunday to be precise, Brian THOMPSON and his crew on Doha 2006 became the first of the Oryx Quest yachts to round the famous landmark. The wind had moderated a little and the speeds had dropped from consistently being in the mid-twenties, to a more sedate 12 knots as the massive Qatari catamaran cruised stately past, the second time for the big cat, the first time for some of the crew on board.
