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.

Matt joined WGN Morning News via Skype Tuesday morning.
