Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Has been a nautical best seller for three decades

Reviewers say this is some of the best of Lin pardey's writing

this book plays a major roll in Lin pardey's new book, Bull Canyon

will be featured at seminars and boatshows in four cities September and October

Will be mentioned during interviews on both radio and TV scheduled to coincide with Setpember tour

Patience Wales
Read the book to know more about Lin and Larry; read the book to experience the Med; and by all means, take it along when you go there
Steve Rust
Adventure, Seraffyn's Mediterranean Adventure, and Seraffyn's Oriental Adventure are the best ever written on the cruising lifestyle. The go simple lifestyle may not appeal to everyone these days but their seamanship, interaction with the locals, love of the lifestyle, and storytelling make these timeless classics
The editor
The Pardeys weave a tale of people and anecdotes that makes for marvelous armchair cruising. If you ve read earlier works, you won t be disappointed. If you re new to the spell of the Pardeys, this will surely hook you.
