Overview

A tale of adventures, as two young dreamers continue their voyaging on board their self-built 24'4" cutter. They cross the exotic sea that spawned Homer's tales of Ulysses' Odyssey, then sail through the strife torn Red Sea and across the typhoon tossed waters of the Bay of Bengal.In this book, fourth of the Seraffyn series, the Pardeys have reached a turning point in their lives-halfway around the world, eight years into a meandering voyage. Their routes had always been determined by the need to find the work to support their cruising life-style or the desire to see an island spoken of by some favorite writer. Now they have to decide whether to continue eastward, or turn back westward and complete the circle with a return to the place they once called home.

Editorial Reviews

L Petranek
Much of this book is about storms. Those contemplating anything more difficult than an armchair voyage ought to buy this book. Most people faced with such a situation sincerely believe they will die. Most dont, but knowing how to make oneself reasonably comfortable throughout the ordeal is a blessing not to be missed. --
Michael Conant
The best part of Seraffyns journey is the storytelling. Even when nothing exciting happens aboard Seraffyn, Lin Pardey makes you feel as though you missed something infinitely special and awe-inspiring. -- Michael Conant, Seattle Post-Intelligencer, 1986
Senior editor
There is a compelling and endearing charm about their books, as well as a solid underlay of practical guidance and advise based on thousands of miles of ocean sailing in all parts of the world...As they have often remarked, it is the people one meets who make cruising so interesting. On this particular sailing stint, they seem to have met an even more attractive, interesting selection of humanity than ever.
