Steel yacht sailing to Antarctica, South Georgia and Cape Horn

Antarctica is said to be the coldest, driest and windiest place on earth, but none of these describes its attractions as a small craft sailing destination: this icy wilderness with no permanent human inhabitants is our planet's last frontier, a fabulous and virtually pristine paradise for wildlife with incomparable scenery.

Its a privilege for the daring sailor to reach this awesome land, and experience the special magic that has lured explorers, early wahlers and sealers, adventurers and scientists to brave its climatic extremes.
