JE SUIS L'ALBATROS QUI T'ATTEND AU BOUT DU MONDE !
.
Voici un hommage à ces oiseaux de légende que l’on peut lire dans l’un des endroits les plus mythiques du globe : l'Île du Cap Horn. Ce poème de Sara Vial, Valparaiso, Chile, en souvenir des cap-horniers, est gravé sur une plaque de marbre exposée sur le chemin menant à la sculpture représentant un albatros sur cette Île.
.

...

« Je suis l’albatros qui t’attend
Au bout du monde.
Je suis l’âme en peine des marins morts
Qui ont doublé le cap Horn
Depuis toutes les mers du globe.
Mais tous n’ont pas péri
Dans les vagues déchaînées,
Aujourd’hui, ils volent sur mes ailes,
Pour l’éternité,
Dans une dernière étreinte
Des vents antarctiques. »

.
"Cape Horn Racing Club ®" is a social and sponsor club to share a life-time dream in the spirit of the albatross - and have fun !

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.

ROUND CAPE HORN ISLAND RACE ®

There will be a media-master and a celebrity-crew onboard every yacht in Round Cape Horn Island Race ® . The concept of having a journalist onboard every yacht was pioneered by the British Steel Challenge Round the World Race against the prevailing wind and currents in 1992-1993.
