British solo skipper, Mike Golding, rounded the fearsome Cape Horn today, becoming the only person to have raced around this infamous rock three times each way: west to east and east to west.
The solo skipper from Hampshire is in sixth place in the Vendee Globe round the world yacht race.
He said the large amount of ice, which have drifted north into the race track, made this his most stressful rounding yet.
Golding, a former firefighter, said: “I think there has probably been ice before, but we just did not know about it and went around blissfully unaware in years gone by. But now with the ice-tracking technology available to the race, we are all the more aware and it is much more stressful."
