A world first: Franck Cammas prepares to round Cape Horn in a foiling catamaran

Franck Cammas, one of the most successful French sailors in the world, is preparing to do something never done before: rounding Cape Horn in a foiling catamaran. This is a world first which will begin on November 8, 2015.

A world first: Franck Cammas prepares to round Cape Horn in a foiling catamaran

 

The Julbo Sail Session? It is an “HORNomous” adventure between Ushuaia (Argentina) and Cape Horn (Chile), which the Julbo skipper, Franck Cammas, will share with an amateur sailor, Johannes Wiebel (GER). They will take a flying catamaran round Cape Horn and then moor there.

It will be a remarkable story of an expedition to the end of the world by a pro and an amateur. It is the realisation of a dream for the two sailors, who will send us breathtaking images.

To be continued... #JulboSailSession

That is NOT rounding Cape Horn!!! It's a daysail in good weather.

This is a bit ridiculous.

Dear Bob,
They did round Cape Horn. You could check it out by yourself in April when the film of this great adventure comes out.
All the best.
