MovieStar rounds the Horn

The VO70 Telefonica MoviStar, on the second part of her ocean training schedule for the Volvo Ocean Race, rounded Cape Horn last Friday. In just two weeks, she has sailed the 4,300 miles separating Wellington from the southernmost tip of the American continent, going from the Pacific Ocean to the Atlantic; a journey during which the crew of the Spanish Round the World race has faced every possible difficulty: “We have come across every sea and wind combination that one can encounter sailing,” says Bouwe Bekking, MoviStar’s Skipper “from winds over 40 knots with monster waves and snow, to dead calms, sailing at 5 knots with the sea like a mirror.
