Press info:Before the opening of the Panama Canal, ships sailed from the east coast to the west coast of North or South America via Cape Horn. It was a long and dangerous journey, but it was the only way. There were regular races from New York to San Francisco for those daring enough to test their skills against the elements. Now players can relive those races in this game. Movement is governed by placing wind tiles along the route. Players can place tiles to either help themselves or to hinder their opponents. First one to collect three station tokens or cross the finish line is the winner.
