Well, I just went round the Horn with Andrew and Elsi!  He phoned me at 1913 our time, 1313 his; and at 15 minutes past 7 we moved from the Atlantic into the Pacific, the Horn just 9 miles North of Elsi.  Conditions have been really favorable all day with a East Nor-easterly force 5 coming on 6 as they moved from East to West.  As you can imagine, Andrew is delighted never imagining Elsi would be round the Horn.  He went below to pour a dram (as did I and our respective families!), and tipped a tot and raised our glasses to sailors past and present who have been through these exciting, turbulent waters.  A big day for Andrew and Elsi – Well Done!
