The Arctic to Antarctica
CIGRA Circumnavigates the Americas
by Mladen Sutej
Release Date: May 2000

CDN$ 19.95

The dramatic account of the first circumnavigation of the North and South American continents by the crew of Croatian Tern [Hrvatska Cigra], a 65-foot steel ketch built in Croatia. The yacht officially began its voyage by completing an east-west transit of the Northwest Passage-only the fifth boat to do so in a single season. (Surprisingly, near the halfway point, the ketch encountered the 27-foot Dove III on its west-east passage.)

From the Gulf of Alaska, Croatian Tern sailed to Vancouver, Canada where they were warmly welcomed by a large Croatian population, and where they wintered over before continuing their southbound route. Further stops on their journey included the Marquesas, Pitcairn and Easter islands, and Valparaiso, before they headed to Cape Horn and across infamous Drake Passage to Antarctica.

Told with humor and ease, The Arctic to the Antarctic is not only the account of the two-year adventure of Croatian Tern, it is also a beautiful photographic achievement with spectacular photographs, and it well documented with historical comments and footnotes.

This expedition is even the more remarkable because author Mladen Sutej envisioned the voyage, enlisted the crew, raised the funding and oversaw the building of Arctic Tern-all this while his country was still at war with Serbia.
