Cape Horn
Cape Horn represents the southernmost point of the Tierra del Fuego Archipelago in southern Chile. Its first European name was Kaap Hoorn, Hoorn being the birthplace of Dutch navigator Willem Corneliszoon Schouten, who rounded it in 1616; the Horn's navigational treachery is legendary in sailing circles.1
