    Day 13
    Cape Horn (scenic cruising)
    Sailing around Cape Horn is a rite of passage in the sailing world, crossing the point where the Atlantic and Pacific oceans meet in a slosh of powerful winds and surging waves that reach as high as 30 metres high.

    Day 14
    Falkland Islands

Stanley is the southernmost capital city – if you can call it that – in the world, once known for its whaling and seal hunting, but now famous for fishing, tourism and its curious political history.
