Franck Cammas, one of the most successful French sailors in the world, has done what no one has achieved before – rounded Cape Horn in a foiling catamaran

As part of the Julbo Sail Session, 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.’

Franck Cammas will sail 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 so that we can make you part of the passage round Cape Horn.
