Amyr Klink, the Brazilian solitary navigator, completed the difficult task of circumnavigating in 1998 the Antarctic continent aboard his aluminum yacht PARATII, built by himself and Jean Lieutaud, Displacement:20 tons, L:15,35m. He reported reaching the fantastic speed of twenty-five knots while surfing gigantic waves without loosing steering control. The whole trip was as endurance test, for both Amyr and his polar yacht.
The news of this voyage was published by some of the most important yachting magazines of the world, praising the merits of this Yacht. PARATII had already proven herself for being one of the two first single handed yachts to hibernate in the Antarctic continent, and for this accomplishment she received the Tilman prize awarded by the Royal Cruising Club as a superb polar yacht.
Amyr related his latest adventures in a present bestseller Endless Sea. In his accounts one of the reasons for the success of the trip was the seaworthiness of his boat.
