Horn

This boat came with name. The previous owners took her twice through the ditch and once around the Horn. “Horn” is short for Cape Horn, South America. Salerosa evidently made that trip, ‘The Horn’ noted for its incredibly bad passage weather.

“Doubling the Horn” is traditionally understood to involve sailing from 50 degrees South on one coast to 50 degrees South on the other coast, the two benchmark latitudes of a Horn run,[19] a considerably more difficult and time-consuming endeavor having a minimum length of 930 miles (1,500 km).[20]
