We were extremely lucky that the weather held off long enough this morning for us to land on Cape Horn. It was both exhilarating and moving, especially the beautiful monument to mariners from all over the world.
While we waited for the boat to take the pilots home the wind got up. It’s now blowing about 30 knots and rising. The sails are filling up, though I think we will only be setting four or five. The wind is a sharp westerly, ahead of the low predicted to hit us tomorrow, and our course is 160 degrees, for Antarctica.
