Amyr Klink, whose sailing exploits have made him a hero in Brazil, tells of his daring single-handed circumnavigation below the Antarctic Convergence. Surfing the waves in his custom-built 50-foot “aluminum red truck”, PARATII, Klink enjoys the quiet confidence that comes from proper planning, common-sense technology, and a life-long fascination with the history of Southern Ocean sailing. A modern Moitessier, sailing before an Aerorig mast, Klink proves his seamanship handling tricky boat repairs while underway, navigating icebergs, negotiating gales and williwaws, and surfing gigantic waves. 260 pages PB.
