David Linger on Koloa Maoli less than 40 miles from Cape Horn

David Linger has managed to make very good progress despite a broken boom and is less than 40 miles from the longitude of Cape Horn. After rounding the Cape Dave will be gybing north towards the Beagle channel and Ushuaia to effect repairs to his boom. Hopefully he will find shelter from the seas and the wind maps indicate that the Beagle channel will also offer some shelter from the heavy winds which are expected to hit the area in the course of today.
