Great nautical feats

Cape Horn Discovery

This remote and enigmatic place was discovered on January 29, 1616 by Willem Schouten and Jacob Le Maire, two steel-made Dutch men who baptized the rock in honor of the city of the Netherlands from where they set sail in June 1615.

Cape Horn is like Everest for mountaineers. For a long time I’ve dreamed of entering our heritage sea with our flag. I am a patriot and I like to carry the name of Chile around the world.

Felipe Cubillos
Social entrepreneur. Aboard his boat, Desafío Cabo de Hornos, he traveled around the world, achieving the dream of becoming a great navigator.

“Difficulties are simply things to overcome.”

Ernest Shackleton
English polar explorer who made expeditions to Antarctica.

“The task is big, but nothing gives me fear: I am a Chilean. Two considerations make me face these dangers: to save explorers and to give glory to Chile. I will be happy if I could achieve what others didn’t.”

Luis Pardo Villarón
Chilean hero and sailor known for piloting the rescue of 22 British castaways who were exploring Antarctica, led by Ernest Shackleton.
