About This Program
In 1853, the great clipper ship Northern Light rounded Cape Horn, setting a speed
record of 76 days for the San Francisco to Boston trade route. In 1993, the trimaran Great
American II attempted to break this 140-year-old record. Starting January 1, 2003,
follow a re-creation of GA II's 1993 voyage around the Horn. Check back daily for
log updates, audio call-ins, photo galleries and much, much more!
