  • Jailbreak At Cape Horn!

    Jailbreak At Cape Horn!

    The effects of the storm extend and affect Ronnie Simpson

    As mentioned in an earlier post, finally the Cape Horn storm forecast we were all following is, thankfully, something better for Feb 6-7-8. The Global Solo Challenge pattern trio consisting of Andrea Mura, Francois Gouin and Riccardo Tosetto should witness much better conditions that should allow them to navigate safely. With the center of low pressure slightly further north than initially anticipated,...

    Storm forces Caudrelier to take a ‘time out'

    The Maxi Edmond de Rothschild team has said this morning that their ARKEA ULTIM CHALLENGE-Brest leading skipper Charles Caudrelier has made the decision to put his race on hold for an indefinite period because of the weather conditions which were expected for his passage of Cape Horn. “They are absolutely incompatible with progress and so we have chosen to be patient.” explains Caudrelier.

    Cape Horn About To Get Extra Gnarly

    Ronnie Simpson won't celebrate Horn quite yet!

    And here is the traditional photo of the Cape Horn rounding. It's certainly more of traditional long salty beard look the one chosen by our Ronnie Simpson on Shipyard Brewing compared to the fresh smile by Cole Brauer a few days back (-; Ronnie's is celebrating with his perfect whiteboard shot but has confided he'll leave proper celebrations for later, as very strong northerly winds are forecast by the Falklands...

    February 1st Global Solo Update

    Ronnie Simpson’s farewell storm before Cape Horn and other challenges
    By Marco Nannini.

    Ronnie Simpson is approaching Cape Horn with less than 200 miles to go to the summit of his “Everest of the Seas”, a metaphor we’ve been using to try to convey what an incredible achievement it is to reach this milestone in a solo circumnavigation. Ronnie patiently paced his arrival to the tip of the south American continent to avoid two nasty storms that...

  • 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.

    The wind is in the 18-22 knot range and the waves are 5 metres and decreasing. That's still plenty of motion on an IMOCA, making movement on board difficult, but slightly better than over

    Blasting Towards The Horn

    Lining up for the Horn

    Cape Horn is just over 1000 miles away, but they will be hard-earned miles...
    The teams have the end of the hardest part of the longest leg in the history of The Ocean Race in sight.

    On Friday afternoon UTC, the most iconic of landmarks to offshore sailors - Cape Horn - lies just over 1000 miles to the east.

    But those miles won't come easily. Gale force winds and 6-8 metre seas are on the menu

  • A Bitter Blast Before Cape Horn

    A Bitter Blast Before Cape Horn

    With 20,000 miles and five months at sea, 70% of their voyage is complete.

    The leading yachts are starting to show little signs of fatigue requiring constant maintenance, just as they are undertaking the most difficult part of the course. They had 1800 miles to run between the end of the exclusion zone and the Cape Horn but now a storm has changed all that. The window that had opened last week for Simon Curwen to reach Cape Horn before February 8 has now closed and a succession

  • A Sigh Of Relief For Gryphon Solo Crew

    A Sigh Of Relief For Gryphon Solo Crew

    Hello Friends-

    I am writing to report that Joe, Roger and GS2 made it around the infamous Cape Horn on December 18, 2022 (see photos below). I have been thinking about this for a very long time, really since I went around Cape Horn the first time in March 2016. That was a very rough and difficult passage, with winds and seas in excess of 60k/feet, and I was forced to round outside Diego Ramirez Island and could not get near Cape Horn rock for the classic photos. This time,
