19 days out of Easter Island and we're closing in on the target, 
sailing in moderate winds and seas punctuated by frequent rain 
squalls.  Klaas predicts we'll round the Horn at 0000 UTC on 19 
November (30 minutes before sunset), which is Monday evening for the 
USA.  Another low pressure system is approaching and should pass us 
to the south, potentially giving us a speed boost.  With luck we'll 
be able to see Cape Horn as we round.
