    Rounding the Horn
    From: Gordon Talge
    Date: 2000 Feb 27, 12:34 AM

    I seem to remember on ESPN2 a while back they had
    video of a yacht race and part of it was around the
    Horn. I was getting seasick just watching it on TV!
    
    One of the sail boats overturned and the pilot,
    ( What do you call a one person yacht person? )
    was trapped upside down until the Navy came and
    got them.
    
    I also seem to remember that you go around from the
    Pacific to the Atlantic, East to West, and not
    the other way around, unless you want to play
    Capt Bligh.
