Franck Cammas, one of the most successful sailors in the world has done what no one has done before; rounded Cape Horn on a foiling catamaran. In a quintessentially French move Cammas and his crew Johannes Wiebel rounded the most iconic of all landmarks flying on foils.
The conditions were perfect and while there is not a whole lot of information it looks as if Cammas and his crew on their carbon Nacra F20 catamaran went back and forth a few times in order to capture this amazing photo. As someone who has seen Cape Horn from the deck of a heaving yacht I never in my life thought that I would see a tiny boat flying gracefully in front of that amazing weatherworn island at the bottom of the world. Congratulations; it’s a world first. – Brian Hancock.
