Exploring Under Sail Cape Horn

Cape Horn Challenge

Fastest of the thousands of clipper ships that made the voyage from New York to San Francisco was Flying Cloud, which made the voyage in 89 days. The record stood for 135 years, until 1989, when five boats tried to break this "oldest record in sailing." Amongst them was Georgs Kolesnikovs, just, in his words, "a middle-aged cruising sailor from Niagara Falls." Underdog of the small fleet at the start, he was, at the finish, owner of the new record time for the passage.
