The Cape Horn Race ® is akin to an upside-down Fastnet Race, or a Sydney-Hobart Race, which attract a record number of entries. A large number of yachts racing round the legendary Horn Island, at the same time, will create intense media actvity.  So, yacht clubs from the South Atlantic ports, such as in Buenos Aires, Argentina ; Falkland Islands (Islas Malvinas) ; and Punta del Este, Uruguay; are invited to organise their own non-stop rally to UNESCO National Park, Cabo de Hornos, subject of course to security, and authorisation of Chilean authorities.
