Paul Dinkel and his wife, Ellen Herman, were part of a small crew on the 57' Seal, which rounded the Horn in 50 knot gusts of wind. Cape Horn itself is the southernmost headland of the Tierra del Fuego archipelago of eight islands off the coast of Chile. It directly faces the South Atlantic Ocean. On land are glaciers, fjords and 3,000 foot cliffs. Paul will show photos and talk about their adventure of a lifetime.
