Bark Europa

Around Cape Horn on a tall ship

Posted by Peter van Duyn in Articles, Logistics, News

In December 2015 I was fortunate enough to round Cape Horn on the tall ship bark Europa. The voyage was in commemoration of the discovery of Cape Horn 400 years ago by two Dutch explorers Schouten and Le Maire who were seeking new routes towards the Dutch East Indies.

We rounded Cape Horn on the 6th of December going from East to West but spent the next five days in the Drake Passage blown towards Antartica by gale force winds. We  slowly managed to make our way westwards and finally entered the Straits of Magellan and sailed towards Punta Arenas.
