So, can we assume not all roundings of the Horn are fraught with sea monsters, rogue waves, and ghost ships? Congrats!

Michael once you and Edi cast off for Capetown I expect we won't get any reports till you arrive... Safe passage and all that.

Do you have a rough estimate/eta? I realize that's a tough thing to predict, but you hope to do it in....? Will there be wifi in S Georgia, I wonder... Are the Falklands on your itinerary?

The current weather makes it imprudent until next Friday at the earliest for us to poke our noses out into the Atlantic to begin a crossing. That takes us into mid-February, which is getting too late to seriously think of South Georgia. We'll likely give it a miss this time around, and instead head northeast to lower and warmer latitudes.

Our bones are cold and it will be nice to warm-up and dry-out on a long downwind crossing with no windy anchorage every night. It will be nice also to start peeling-off these several layers of fleece.

Cheers,
Michael

We are looking at a tad over 4000 miles to Cape Town, which can take from 20 to 40 days, depending on conditions. We'll likely take about 30. Because of the current political situation down here, we cannot visit the Malvinas without special permission from Argentina, so we'll have to miss stopping there. See my previous post about South Georgia.

Cheers,
Michael
