As part of the #JulboSailSession, Franck Cammas rounded Cape Horn in a Nacra F20 Carbon FCS accompanied by a novice sailor -Johannes Wiebel (GER). Weather conditions were good, with 15 knots of wind and 2.5-metre waves. 

"It's been a really great and successful adventure", Franck Cammas said after getting back on land. "It’s unusual to have a weather window in 10 days for a boat like this to round Cape Horn. It's my third passage and it’s really uncommon to do it with such a small boat.
