Sequitur Rounds Cape Horn


At 1300 on Thursday the 2nd of February, Groundhog Day we rounded Cape Horn east-to-west, then turned and rounded it west-to-east, just to make sure. There was no shadow for the groundhog to see, so we assumed that means it is still summer down here.

Cheers,
Michael

Free, is the heart, that lives not, in fear.
Full, is the spirit, that thinks not, of falling.
True, is the soul, that hesitates not, to give.
Alive, is the one, that believes, in love.

That is absolutely awesome, Michael - what an incredible milestone in the life of any sailor... Looks like you had a fairly pleasant time of it, I will be raising a glass to you two tonight, while sitting in my cockpit with the Miami skyline in the distance... (grin)

Are you still planning on S. Georgia? Season is getting pretty short down there, no?

Best of luck, can't tell you how much I enjoy your blog, though I'm still trying to catch up with you, there... (grin)

Sorry, ye must have sunk twice! Hunters are not supposed to be able to sail around Cape Horn.....

In the mean time, Congrats for proving fo the umpteenth time, that one can go around the horn in a typical modern sailboat!

The nerve of him.......how irresponsible, now everyone in a Hunter is going to try it, and he'll be responsible.

I love how you did it twice just to make sure, nice work!
