Sailing the Horn

This is 10 minutes extracted from a BBC special. Well worth the watch:

Very cool. Is that part of a longer documentary? I would love to see the whole thing and on a big screen.

Silly and overly dramatic. But I love the lighthouse stop. Worth the viewing to actually get a look at the cape from land.

I know what you mean. I read about people rolling their boats in the South Ocean and it just doesn't meet my definition of a good time. Now the bit with the bottle of rum on a point looking out at the ocean .... that looked alright!
