Re: Islander 28 single handed around Cape Horn?

I know a guy on a Bristol 27 who is sailing around the world (or at least heading in that direction) singlehanded, without an engine. Didn't do Cape Horn though. Last saw him in Suwarrow. Also met four French kids (to me, anyone under 30 is a kid) in Mangareva who had come down the Atlantic and gone to Antartica in a pretty ordinary-looking boat. I guess somewhere in there they went around Cape Horn.
