  • The Southern Ocean Bares Her Teeth

    The Southern Ocean Bares Her Teeth

    After 48 hours of building wind and seas, with gusts over 40 knots and waves approaching 7 metres, conditions are starting to moderate on Sunday with the IMOCA fleet turning south to squeeze between Cape Horn and the ice exclusion zone.
