Franck Cammas, one of the most successful French sailors in the world, has done what no one has achieved before – rounded Cape Horn in a foiling catamaran

As part of the Julbo Sail Session, Franck Cammas rounded Cape Horn in a Nacra F20 Carbon FCS accompanied by a novice sailor -Johannes Wiebel (GER).

Weather conditions were good, with 15 knots of wind and 2.5-metre waves.

‘It’s been a really great and successful adventure,’ Franck Cammas said after getting back on land. ‘It’s unusual to have a weather window in 10 days for a boat like this to round Cape Horn. It’s my third passage and it’s really uncommon to do it with such a small boat.’
