Rounding Cape Horn on the tall ship Peking

Irving Johnson made this video that has been adapted into the film “Around Cape Horn.  In this short clip he really details the vessel and the dangers encountered by the crew as she rounded Cape Horn.  I find this stuff fascinating and thought you may enjoy it.


Rough Weather Video, Cape Horn 2010

This video was taken during 2010 when the 274′ Thomas G. Thompson rounded Cape Horn. One Z Drive was broken down and they were just hove-to trying to ride out the storm until they could get back to port. The seas were reported to be 60′. (I wasn’t on this trip)
