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. They held 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 hinder their opponents. The first player who passes three different nautical stations or pass es two stations and the finish line wins the race and the game. May the winds always be at your back!
