Kygo sailed around Cape Horn

It is a dream of many sailors. Kygo fulfilled it with his dad.

The conditions were rough with stormy weather and strong winds. Still it was an experience of a lifetime sailing around Cape Horn on the historical tall ship, Statraad Lehmkuhl.

"It has been a lot of fun. Very exciting", said Kygo when interviewed on board the ship. Watch the full interview in the video below. 

Kygo is familiar with boats and being on the ocean. Sailing around Cape Horn is a dream of many sailors. Kygo did it together with his father, Lars Gørvell-Dahl.

Statsraad Lehmkuhl is currently on a 20-month-long circumnavigation called the One Ocean Expedition, and as a goodwill Ambassadors, Kygo joined this particular lag of their 55.000 nautical-mile-long route. 

The One Ocean Expedition is a recognized part of the UN Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development. Statsraad Lehmkuhl serves as a floating university and training vessel combined, and the the goal of the expedition is to share knowledge about the crucial role of the ocean for a sustainable development in a global perspective.
