Well, some people regretted that we did not arrive in a flying storm at Cape Horn today.
YES! we were at Cape Horn!
Well, some people regretted that we did not arrive in a flying storm at Cape Horn today, inspired as they were by the movie of the big windjammers rounding the Horn in wind force 10... But we had moderate winds, calm seas and even some sunshine when we approached this ultimate southern point of South America and there it was, the lighthouse, the big flagpole and the boulder beach were we landed in the zodiacs, YES! we were at Cape Horn!
antarctica here we come
Of course, you could say it is just another small rocky island but I think that most of us were impressed by being at this mythical location, I certainly was!
And we got back onboard, waved goodbye to the Chilean pilots and hauled anchor. And lo!, the winds picked up, sun shining brightly and we set sails, turned towards the south with albatrosses wheeling around the ship and we were sailing, sailing! Antarctica, here we come!
