DARWIN200 Global Voyage: Leg 27. Sail around the legendary Cape Horn! In past centuries, sailors that accomplished this feat earned the right the title of “Cape Horner” to boast of their seafaring victory. They were held in such reverence that they were granted the right to wear a gold loop earring and the right to dine with one foot on the dinner table! Become a Horner! Along the way, spot whales, dolphins, penguins and albatrosses! This voyage leg is not for novice sailors, but those seeking a genuine sailing adventure!
There is no more Covid-19 protocol on board, but the participants must make sure that they comply with the rules of the countries visited during the Journeys.
