That is so sad. I have just returned from South America and having rounded Cape Horn and cruised the Straights of Magellan during a storm, I will attest to the fact that these are extremely difficult waters to navigate safely.

The number of shipwrecks in the area that appear on navigational maps is overwhelming and it is easy to see why. When entering the Straights there is a rusty hull sticking about 35 ft into the air from a rock outcropping...it is really very ominous.
