She is around!


First (horrible) self portrait across Cape Horn, not really relaxed...

Freya just now called to tell me that she made it around the Cape! She is now pointing the bow to the north using as much of the weather window as possible.

Well done Honey!

  • Congratulations!!!, but not to relaxing…

    Jörg: Rounding Cape Horn represents a major milestone in Freya’s expedition, and deserves all the applause we can give it. Even though the relief we felt when she finally escaped Isla Deceit was much deeper. Every day, when I need a dose of inspiration, she reminds me of that old Engineer’s slogan: “The difficult we do immediately. The impossible takes a little longer.”

  • Laura:

    Congratulations Freya! What a wonderful accomplishement! Whenever the going gets tough, I just think of Freya paddling around the Cape. You are a very, very impressive young lady (and fellow German). Keep on paddling! Happy New Year! ;o)

  • Congratulation Freya! A big step seems to be done. Not physically only (even if this is earning my very highly respect) but mental too.
    Take care. Happy New Year and best wishes for good progress.

  • Outstanding! Happy new year!

  • Jack:

    Great news, Great effort, don’t let your guard down.

  • luisella:

    Well done, Freya! Now you are a Cap-Hornier! Lucky 2012 and enjoy it!

  • Frits:

    Well done Freya, as an old sailor, I will tell you that since you now have rounded The Cab, are you allowed to call yourself “well exercised in sea duty”

  • Jörg Hofferbert:

    Sorry Freya, bud i didn´t understand the enthusiasm from the bloggers now. For two days the applause was absolutely correct, when you landed. That you not go southern again, but either northern, for me it was normal. But in deed: For every day you earn an applause.
