Cape Horn marks the northern boundary of the Drake Passage and marks where the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans meet. It is named after the city of Hoorn in the Netherlands (January 25, 1616) and is the southernmost headland of the Tierra del Fuego archipelago of southern Chile, located on the small Hornos Island.
The waters around Cape Horn are particularly hazardous, owing to strong winds, large waves, strong currents and icebergs; these dangers have made it notorious as a sailor's graveyard.
