The Register

This Register lists solo sailors who have made true easterly or westerly circumnavigations, passing the Capes of Good Hope, Leeuwin and Horn under sail. To view The Register Click Here (opens in a new browser window).

Similarly, two solo sailors are listed who have 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. Voyages 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]
