Matt Knighton has a pretty cool gig.
He's from Chicago, but these days he's the onboard reporter for Abu Dhabi Ocean Racing.
WGN Morning News spoke with him a few week backs, as he was on his way to New Zealand.
They have now made it around Cape Horn, the southern part of South America.
Waters are hazardous, winds are brutal, waves are terrifying -- and let's not forget the icebergs. Some describe it as a "sailors graveyard."
Matt joined WGN Morning News via Skype Tuesday morning.
