Summary

His Dream - a lifelong goal to round Cape Horn and circumnavigate the Southern Hemisphere in their sailboat. 

Her Nightmare - coping with her obsessive husband and the frightening seas of the Great Southern Ocean. 

Eight hundred miles WNW of Cape Horn, Don and Réanne Douglass encountered the ultimate wave which pitch-poled their sailboat and turned it into a leaking lifeboat. Working together, the couple struggled over the next 42 days to reach safety in southern Chile, while family and friends all but gave up hope. 

Cape Horn is a classic sea story told from a woman's point of view. It is also a gripping account of one couple's turbulent relationship, and their survival and endurance in some of the most extreme conditions imaginable.
