Reviews

Endless Sea is a sailor s narrative that traces Amyr Klink s solo voyage circumnavigating Antarctica from 31 October 1998 to 19 March 1999 in his steel-hulled boat, PARATII. His remarkable voyage of some 18,000 miles takes place during summer in the southern hemisphere, but he still finds plenty of ice to contend with, as well as freezing temperatures, dense fogs, and snow-, ice-, and rainstorms. As he sails along through his story, Klink comments on the history of Antarctic exploration, briefly recounting the exploits of Cook, Bellinghausen, Amundsen, Scott and others. Amundsen he deems the most intrepid of all a solid explorer who, importantly, achieved his dream. Another valuable component of the book is the contribution of his wife's land log of the voyage. Last year, I visited the Antarctic Peninsula where this extraordinary sailor made stops at many of the same places; I wish I could have done so when the region was still so pristine. Reading his story inspires me to return to the end of the world and to sail the endless sea. Sea History Even given the dangers he faced during this remarkable circumnavigation, Klink still imbues his account with a gracious modesty... Ocean Navigator This book chronicles what it s like to sail alone around Antarctica, as far south as a boat can sail. This modern Moitessier sailed his 50-foot 'Aluminum Red Truck' (his words!) around the most desolate place on Earth. Okay, it is not a trip everyone wants to make, but it sure is one every sailor will want to read about. This book will prove to be a classic sailing story. A great read! Latitudes & Attitudes
