Katharsis II


Mariusz Koper launched Katharsis II, an Oyster 72 in August 2009 to share his passion of sailing in remote waters with his family and friends. He logged on board of Katharsis II almost 70000 nm, exploring the extreme corners of our globe, including the North West Passage in the icy Arctic Ocean and the South Polar Circle.

Katharsis II and her Polish crew proved their skills in Atlantic Rally for Cruisers 2009 3rd in invitation division, 10th line of honors and BVI Oyster Regatta 2010 2nd before the circumnavigation of both Americas. The next challenge after the participation in 70th Rolex Sydney Hobart Yacht Race will be the Ross Sea Polar Expedition to reach the furthest south place on earth.
