The Drake Passage rounding Cape Horn

"I am the albatross that waits for you at the end of the earth. I am the forgotten soul of the dead sailors who crossed Cape Horn from all the seas of the world.  But they did not die in the furious waves.  Today they fly in my wings to eternity in the last trough of the Antarctic wind."

poem by Sara Vial inscribed on the albatross sculpture at Cape Horn

Cape Horn:  The southernmost land in the New World.  This tip of South America is 1,300 miles further south than the Cape of Good Hope and 600 miles below the latitude of New Zealand’s Steward Island.  Until the Panama Canal was opened, Cape Horn, also called ‘Cape Stiff’, or just the ‘Horn’, was the principle route from the east coast of N. America to the Far East and from Australia to England.
