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

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

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.”
