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.

Back home on Lake Ontario after something over 36,000 nm circumnavigator. Not surprisingly there is a lot of stuff I want to get done on Ainia both cosmetically and functionally. Getting an early start so it will be ready to go for next summer (Lake Superior?).
