Throughout the manual, the southern area South Africa is refered to as "Cape Horn, Africa" (5.33), and travelling around it is refered to as going "around the Horn." However, isn't Cape Horn actually the southern tip of South America, and the southern area around Africa called the Cape of Good Hope?

Clarification on this would be appreciated.

This was an error introduced during a final proof-read by a naval afficianado. I had no reason to doubt him and didn't check the geography, and it slipped through.

We corrected it in the Living Rules.

Sorry about the confusion.
