Ryan Breymaier on Maserati: Cold, frigid, chilling...

The only words I have to describe the time since passing the horn are: Cold, Frigid, bone chilling, etc. I think you get the picture.

Ryan Breymaier: Around the Horn ahead of Gitana

At 3:35 GMT today we rounded Cape Horn on Maserati, our 70 footer. We are now headed upwind in 35 knots of breeze with storm jib and 2 reefs in the mainsail.

The dawn has come cold and clear on Maserati; it is amazing, but as soon as you see the sun starting to peer over the horizon, it is already warmer.

Still 675 miles from the Horn on Maserati and we are sailing upwind in 12 knots, J1 and full main, in beautiful flat water with not a cloud in the sky.

Ryan Breymaier: Upwind to the Horn

Maserati has passed the cold front, and is into upwind conditions. It was not very difficult, with gusts to 35 but only for a short period.

Ryan Breymaier: Maserati's tricky route to the Horn

We have a complicated weather situation onboard Maserati in the days leading to our Cape Horn rounding and will not be going extremely fast for the whole time.

On Maserati we are in a strange zone with many different weather phenomenon, we went through a little front where we had our sail damage, then were in light air for a day.

Onboard Maserati we are enjoying our last day of tradewinds sailing in the Atlantic Ocean.

So, the southeast trades have not been super strong, but we have made good time, doing over 350 miles yesterday.
