Podcast Episode 9: Racing to Cape Horn
In this episode, I get to the exciting conclusion of my transit across the Southern Ocean in my Open 60 Spartan. After ending up 500Nm behind the fleet I had to screw my courage to the sticking place and start to push harder than I had ever pushed before.
Slowly but surely I start to close the gap as I hammer South and East to Cape Horn. Very soon however it becomes clear that catching up might not be my only problem- my arrival at Cape Horn is going to coincide with a 50 Knot Storm.

My name is Chris Stanmore-Major better known as CSM. I have over 300,000Nm experience in racing, cruising & expedition sailing and have raced twice around the world. I sailed solo around the world in the Velux 5 Oceans Race in 2011 (in Falcon’s sister ship) becoming the 182nd person ever to circumnavigate alone.
This Podcast channel is for sailors of all skill levels and backgrounds. My passion is seamanship & self-reliance and helping others realize their sailing dreams on their own boats – whatever size or shape of craft that may be.
