Overview


Skimming before caressing tradewinds, savoring tropical landfalls, evading stormy seas-such is the image of the cruising life under sail. It is all this, but it can be so much more. Join Lin and Larry Pardey as they recount some of their most memorable adventures during more than 30 years of cruising. Sail with them across the Indian Ocean on board 29-foot, 9-inch Taleisin. Learn how they planned and executed a seven-month "Champagne Safari on a Beer Budget," outfitting a 4X4 to reach remote corners of southern Africa. Share their memories of campfire evenings with Kalahari Bushmen, life in a sculptors' commune in Zimbabwe's northern reaches, and days of animal-watching at waterholes far from game reserves. Then voyage onward with them to Brazil, and see how two 14-year-old nephews led them into a unique, eight-month-long island encounter with nine Rio de Janeiro families who dreamed of their own offshore adventures. Finally, sail north through the Atlantic to Ireland's music-filled shores and a summer of history, classic sailing, and friendship.
