Join Lin and Larry Pardey on board their cruising boat Taleisin and at their home base in New Zealand as they share ideas and hints to make your boat safer, easier to handle, and more enjoyable to use.
On board Taleisin—the boat that has been their home for 85,000 miles of voyaging—they demonstrate galley upgrades, table design ideas, comfortable seating arrangements, and ways to improve ventilation below deck. On deck—learn how sail and ground-tackle handling can be made easier for even the smallest crew member. Larry discusses sun protection, rain collection, and line handling. Lin provides advice on buying and storing provisions and hints for keeping you and your crew dry, warm, clean and well rested.
Shot in the Pittwater (north of Sydney, Australia) and at Fremantle, as well as at their homebase in New Zealand where they are resoring and racing a 114-year-old yacht, this DVD incorporates the best ideas from their highly praised videos, including Cruising with Lin and Larry and the Care and Feeding of Sailing Crew.
Come along and share some of the secrets that, even after forty years afloat, make the Pardeys eager to keep cruising “...as long as it’s fun.”
