    MARINA DEL REY, Calif. -- A 16-year-old Southern California girl attempting to become the youngest person to sail around the world alone has rounded Cape Horn on the southern tip of South America.


    Abby Sunderland is believed to be the youngest person to sail alone around Cape Horn, known for treacherous winds and waves.


    Sunderland says on her blog that she didn't get to see the cape because she was some 50 to 60 miles offshore as she crossed from the Pacific Ocean into the Atlantic.


    Sunderland embarked five months after older brother Zac completed a westerly solo circumnavigation at the age of 17.
