Description:
After nearly half a century of adventures in small boats on big oceans, sailing legends Lin and Larry Pardey have hung up their sea boots and retired to Kawau Island in the Hauraki Gulf. You would think that this would provide Lin time to sit down and write the tell-all biography of 5 decades worth of exploits, both on sea and off. Far from it. The last big Pardey adventure has been farmed out to friend and editor Herb McCormick. And, we are all the much richer for this objective, warts and all biography, with plenty of Pardey stories that didn't make it into print. The threats, the fights, the puking, the anecdotes, big hurricanes, and dragging anchors, the times spent ashore when the money ran out...In fact, all the stories you would expect when 2 people spend 24 hours a day, seven days a week cooped up on a 24 foot wooden boat with a bucket for a toilet, no electricity, no engine, no modern navigation gear and a living area the size of a motel bathroom. The Pardey's lived by 2 guiding principles. They would keep going 'as long as it's fun' and they would 'go small, go simple, and go now'.
Herb McCormick, editor of 'Cruising World' magazine for 30 years, has crafted a narrative that follows the Pardey tracks from one side of the world to the other, holding nothing back, but showing the hard work, steely resolve, the terror and the fun that was the essence of their life's journey.
