"Nothing can keep you cruising longer, safer, and on a lower budget than self-sufficiency, and no one knows more about the subject than Lin and Larry Pardey" -- Tom Linskey, Editor, Sail Magazine This book is exactly what the title says, a distillation of lessons the Pardeys have learned from 200,000 miles of sailing on board their own boats and others they have delivered or r aced. Lin and Larry show how they have sailed in comfort and safety without large cash outlays -- on a pay-as-you-earn-as-you-go plan and by simplifying. A sailor who relies on expensive equipment is risking disaster. A sailor's reliance must be on self first and on electronics and mechanics last. For example, do not count on your safety harness to keep you attached to the boat. Do, however, learn the how, why and what of not falling overboard in the first place. Know the proper layout and gear that will eliminate the need to take risks in any weather. How to learn basic sailing and seamanship, to choose a boat and equipment designed for safe, comfortable voyaging; how to learn maintenance and repair, inspection of rigging and equipment, sailing without an engine -- these are what the Pardeys teach. This is an essential book for coastal and offshore sailors and has been revised to add valuablle information for sailoros oof the 21st century.

In As Long as It’s Fun, the biography of Lin and Larry Pardey, Herb McCormick recounts their remarkable sailing career—from their early days in Southern California to their two circumnavigations to their current life in a quiet cove in New Zealand. Through interviews with their families, friends, and critics, McCormick delves deeply into the couple’s often-controversial opinions, sometimes-tenuous marriage, and amazing list of accomplishments. As Long as It’s Fun is as much a love story as it is a sea yarn, and, like all such stories, it’s not without complications . . . which makes it not only a sailing tale but also a human one.

Lin and Larry Pardey have now been cruising on board their own boats, racing, delivering, and repairing other people’s boats for more than 44 years. After west-to-east and east-to-west circumnavigations, and voyages to more than 75 countries, they have a breadth of knowledge that few other boating authors possess. Most of the voyaging has been done on an earn-as-you-go budget that could be well within the reach of the majority of those whose dream is to set sail. Their motto? “Go small, go simple, but go now!” The Pardeys’ strengths are neatly symbolized by the boats they have built. Each one is romantically traditional, with swooping sheerlines, and is completely dependent on the wind. And yet each boat carries the best, strongest, and most seamanlike gear. Like their vessels, the Pardeys’ writings are founded on a marriage of the spirit of romantic adventure and the practical, up-to-date seamanship that keeps them and their boats safe. This revised and expanded third edition of a cruising classic includes 10 completely new chapters with such advice as: sixteen ways to encourage your lover (partner) to share your dream; strategies for turning sudden engine failure into a minor incident; choosing safety equipment; repairing rigging at sea. All of the original chapters have been updated to ensure that the information will be helpful for everyone who dreams of cruising—whether now or soon. The Capable Cruiser is a logical extension of the Pardeys’ The Self-Sufficient Sailor, with more emphasis on seamanship underway, including careful analysis of extreme anchoring situations and solutions for mitigating them. Underlying each and every chapter is the warmth and encouragement that spurred Herb McCormick, former editor of Cruising World magazine, to label Lin and Larry Pardey “the enablers.”
