At exactly midday today, Andrew and Elsi were crossing the precise longitude of Cape Horn  (67°S  17’W), that’s an amazing piece of timing!  He said the weather has been “no bad” with seas fairly flat and the wind a bit lighter.  He does feel the difference having eliminated the goose barnacles, not least because the cockpit drains are now emptying much better; but also getting rid of them  has been a comfort psychologically.  Any comfort such as that can make a huge difference when in such a remote and wildly unpredictable place.  Andrew clearly is relieved to be underway again.
