Drake Passage is the body of water between the southern tip of South America at Cape Horn and the South Shetland Islands of Antarctica. Named after the sixteenth century English explorer Sir Francis Drake, although he never actually sailed the passage, it connects the Pacific and Atlantic oceans, and is the shortest crossing from Antarctica to the rest of the world’s land, about 860 km. Conditions can change instantly in the Drake Passage, owing to strong winds, large waves, strong currents, and icebergs: hence notorious as ‘sailors’ graveyard.’ Until the opening of the Panama Canal in 1914 large ships had to sail this passage. Yet today most commercial shipping uses the open-ocean Drake Passage.

To avoid Drake Passage ships can be piloted through the narrow Magellan Strait separating the mainland of South America and Tierra del Fuego to the south; or, take the narrower Beagle Channel. Recreational sailors circumnavigate the world through these three routes, but Drake Passage is chosen for speed records. This is the yachting equivalent of climbing Mount Everest. The “furious fifties” and “screaming sixties” winds blow without interruption, tunnelled from west to east between the Andes to the north and the Antarctic peninsula. These winds famously resisted the efforts of HMS Bounty in 1788. And rogue waves can reach 30m.

Ships in the passage are good platforms for the sighting of whales, dolphins, and seabirds including petrels, albatrosses and penguins. Ships offer educational programmes, usually with a photography focus. One important feature of the Southern Ocean is the Antarctic Circumpolar Current. This is the world’s biggest ocean current, flowing eastward at an astonishing rate of 600 times the flow of the Amazon River. Even if a little rough, the passage is extremely exhilarating. The passage has been described in many novels; and in the words of poet John Masefield: "Cape Horn, that tramples beauty into wreck / And crumples steel and smites the strong man dumb."
