Who Rounded Cape Horn on January 23?

On January 23 at approximately 0820 local time, I watched, from the deck of a cruise ship, a white sloop rounding Cape Horn from east to west. For my own interest, I would like contact the the captain and/or crew and learn more about them, the boat, and their voyage. I have digital photographs of the boat that I would gladly share with them. Can anyone help?

Wasn't me.....

No Cape Horn or Cape Good Hope for this sailor.

Grew my balls flying bush-pilot in Alaska years ago.

Don't need to prove a thing, or put my boat or crew in harms way rounding no Cape.

Did the Capes aboard big ships in the 70s...Too lazy to go again on my own boat...

Frank, I also would like to see those photos. I have some resources to possibly track down the boat, and for my own interest, would like to do so. I am always looking for new guests on my radio program, and rounding Cape Horn is an automatic to get me begging for an interview.
