This Register lists those solo sailors who have made true circumnavigations both east-about and westward, passing the Cape of Good Hope, Cape Leeuwin and Cape Horn under sail. To view The Register Click Here
In addition, two solo sailors have also completed North/South circumnavigations via the North West Passage and Cape Horn, a route that may become more popular as receding ice opens up this sea route.
Joshua Slocum is recognised as the first solo circumnavigator, but his pioneering voyage did not take him around Cape Horn, and like those who have followed, passing through either the Beagle Channel or the Panama Canal are not included in this listing.
Details of new circumnavigations or suggested amendments to existing records are always welcome. Please contact: [email protected]
