German translation:fünf Kaps auf der Backbordseite
Explanation:
Sounds to me like a situation described in the following reference:
The BOC Around Alone Challenge is a yacht race. It is also the longest race for any individual in the world. The race occurred through the demand by veterans of the Europe 1 STAR for an even greater challenge. Having crossed the Atlantic solo the next logical step was for a solo circumnavigation of the globe. The BOC Group (formally the British Oxygen Corporation) became the sponsor of the event, launching the inaugural race in 1982, out of Newport, Rhode Island. Entrants would circumnavigate the world, leaving all Capes to port side. There would be three mandatory stopovers along the way.

...den Kurs so umsegeln, dass die fünf Kaps auf der Backbordseite des Boots liegen... (or something like that)
