Can you suggest the best time to take a South American cruise around Cape Horn, including the smoothest month for sailing? The best times to travel are December, January and February, when you'll likely encounter average daytime highs in the 80s in Buenos Aires, Argentina, and Santiago, Chile, and lows in the 50s and 60s. But it's only temporary. As your ship makes it way toward the southern tip of South America, be prepared to bundle up. In Ushuaia, the capital of Tierra del Fuego province in Argentina, the daytime temperature ranges from 42 to 57 degrees.

PUNTA ARENAS, Chile -- As the Chilean fishing trawler began a 500-mile trip to port with rescued Newport Beach, Calif., sailor Ken Barnes, details emerged about a harrowing three days alone near Cape Horn on his disabled 44-foot ketch, Privateer. "It was wild inside the boat," said Barnes from the Polar Pesca I, the fishing boat that rescued him early yesterday. Pictures taken from a military aircraft before the rescue showed Barnes wearing yellow foul-weather gear and waving at rescuers from his boat.

To celebrate the new year, Annapolis sailor Ryan Breymaier will share a one-bunk, one-burner boat with a guy from Germany as they race around the world without stopping — three months of freeze-dried food and freezing-cold bodies. Not exactly a Carnival cruise. But the man nicknamed "Tarzan" during his collegiate sailing career at St. Mary's College of Maryland thrives on howling, bucking conditions that would send the rest of us in search of the entertainment director. In fact, Breymaier is the only American in the 25,000-mile Barcelona World Race, which begins today and will end in late March.

AUCKLAND, New Zealand -- Just before noon here tomorrow, the nine yachts in the Whitbread Round the World Race fleet will leave the tranquillity of their moorings, slip out of Auckland's Waitemata Harbour and assemble under the brooding bulk of Rangitoto, the ancient volcano that squats like a malevolent green gnome, guarding this gateway to the Pacific Ocean.There, in a traditional Auckland ceremony, a priest, the Rev. Richard Beck, will take up a Bible and ask the almighty for a time-honored blessing upon those that go to the sea in ships.

What can cruise the ocean at better than 13 knots on pontoons bigger than a Trident submarine, is as tall as a 20-story building and can ride out hurricane-force winds without spilling a cup of coffee?It's the Odyssey, a converted North Sea drilling platform that is the centerpiece of a multinational project led by the Boeing Co. to do what's never been done before -- launch satellites into space from the ocean.Next summer, a Russian-Ukrainian rocket is scheduled to blast off from the Odyssey near Christmas Island in the Pacific, sending a new-generation Hughes communication satellite into a stationary orbit 22,300 miles above Earth.

Local recreation councils will put their time and money toward more than a dozen projects, including ballfields, a pavilion, parking and fences, with help from a Carroll County fund. In most cases, the county pays about three-quarters of the cost, and the groups contribute the remainder in money and labor, said Richard Soisson, the county director of recreation and parks. The Recreation and Parks Advisory Board recommended these self-help project requests in spending $53,925 remaining from the 2005 capital budget, he said.

I always wanted to visit Tierra del Fuego, but never thought I'd make it. Though I worked as a reporter for years in South America, I never found the journalistic justification to go. Maybe that's why I read so many books about it. Things change. Recently my wife, Susana, and I found ourselves speeding toward that remote archipelago at the bottom of the South American continent, our trip actually enabled by the financial mess in Argentina, a consequence of the country's default on its foreign debt.
