Rounding the Horn

Team Alvimedica , skippered by Bristol’s Charlie Enright, rounded Cape Horn Monday at the front of the shrinking Volvo Ocean Race fleet. The passage past sailing’s most respected landmark was a fast one with boats speeds in the mid-twenties. The night before, another of the entries, the Chinese Dongfeng Race Team boat, lost the top of its mast and was sailing in to port. That left five boats actively racing as the boats crossed from Pacific Ocean to Atlantic and headed for the Leg 5 finish in Itajai, Brazil. The fleet will next be racing to Newport with arrival in May. Photo by Rick Tomlinson/Volvo Ocean Race
