WELCOME TO CAPE HORN RACE 19/20 BY ALEC HONEY
.

As the first yacht-racing team navigator to race Round Cape Horn on 23 January 1974 onboard Great Britain 2, and subsequently the first team- navigator to Race Round the world in the first Whitbread Round the World Race, 1973-1974, I founded Cape Horn Race in 2006 with the late Rear Admiral Roberto Benavente, Chilean Navy. It is only natural that this dream continues today...

...

The concept of a "Race within a Race" : "Round Cape Horn Island Race" ® was created and developed to give an opportunity for young people to achieve their passion; their life-time experience; in security;
on an Historic route ; and above all to have fun !

As part of our social programme, you will see an example above in a video of the emotional experience and social activity of the Nautical Sailing School Club in Puerto Williams, which the young sailors will provide during a "pit-stop" and "Cape Horn Cup"® podium after "Round Cape Horn Island Race." ®

These young sailors are an inspiration for us all ! I wish to thank them for this opportunity of meeting at the end of the World !

In the spirit of Cape Horn.
Alec.
