Cape of Storms
From OpenwaterpediaCabo das Tormentas was the original name of the Cape of Good Hope. The first modern rounding of the cape was in 1488 by Portuguese explorer Bartolomeu Dias.
The Cape of Good Hope is a rocky headland on the Atlantic coast of the Cape Peninsula, South Africa. As one of the great capes of the South Atlantic Ocean, the Cape of Good Hope has been of special significance to sailors for many years and is widely referred to by them simply as the Cape. It is a waypoint on the clipper route followed by clipper ships to the Far East and Australia, and still followed by several offshore yacht races.
