Join Lin and Larry Pardey at their home base in New Zealand as they share ideas and hints to make your boat safer, easier to handle, and more enjoyable to use.
On board Taleisin-the boat that has been their home for 65,000 miles of voyaging - they demonstrate galley upgrades, table design ideas, comfortable seating arrangements, and ways to improve ventilation below deck. On deck, learn how sail and ground-tackle handling can be made easier for even the smallest crew member. Larry discusses sun protection, rain collection, and line handling. Lin provides advice on buying and storing provisions and hints for keeping you and your crew dry, warm, clean, and well rested. Shot in The Pittwater (north of Sydney, Australia) and at Fremantle, as well as at their home base in New Zealand (where they are restoring a 110-year-old racing yacht), this DVD incorporates the best ideas from their highly praised videos, including Cruising with Lin and Larry Pardey and The Care and Feeding of Sailing Crew. The programs have been re-edited, re-mastered, and supplemented with new information from these master voyagers, who now have more than 180,000 miles under their belts - including a contrary-to-the-wind circumnavigation below the four great southern capes.
