The main thing is to pass Cape Horn in the good conditions.
Every year between October and December it’s the right time to start it!
For Sailing World record, the traditional start line is between the Créac’h lighthouse on the island of Ushant and the Lizard lighthouse in Cornwall in the English Channel.
On the island of Ushant, a controller from WSSRC, the World Sailing Speed Record Council will sight the boat to start and finish the chronometer of the record when passing North of the Lighthouse.
It's possible to visit the island.
