In the year 2009 three windsurfers and a camera crew started out to sail around the infamous Cape Horn. They wanted to capture the myth of the cape and get a better understanding of the “old day” sailors and buccaneers, who surrounded the most southern tip of South America without engines or any kind of modern navigation systems. Starting from the Pacific coast in Chile, southbound to the Patagonian lakes, they arrive at the end of the world in “Tierra del Fuego”. While experiencing a typical crab fishing day, the guys learn a lot about the currents, the winds and the stories from a local fisherman. Will they be able to windsurf the stormy waters of Cape Horn?
