Groupama First to Round Cape Horn Southern Ocean Big Waves 3D Race Tracker Graphic Video and Abu Dhabi Makes Repairs at Sea Cape Horn - Groupama were the first team to round Cape Horn on Friday, passing the mythical maritime milestone at 1255 GMT in what was an emotional moment for the crew.

"Passing Cape Horn is a huge relief for us," Groupama skipper Franck Cammas said after 12 days of hugely demanding sailing since the fleet left Auckland.

"It feels like we're leaving the main risks behind us considering what's happened to the other boats. We're proud to be the first ones to pass. It's a big moment for the crew."

Groupama were followed round at 1352 by PUMA Ocean Racing powered by BERG with all the sailors up on deck in preparation for a celebration.
The pair now face a tactical battle over the remaining 2,000 nm through the South Atlantic to the Leg 5 finish in Itajaí, Brazil. Groupama and PUMA's crossing into the Atlantic was in contrast to the other boats, three of which face upcoming repairs due to structural damage, and a fourth which is on a commercial ship headed to the United States.
