Storm Tactics Handbook Revised and Expanded By 40%
Will Be Introduced by Lin and Larry at Seminars in California

“After voyaging tens of thousands of engineless miles under sail, penning more useful marine books than Hiscock and Moitessier combined, and receiving more awards for their pursuits than Tom Hanks has for his, Lin and Larry Pardey are entitled to their well-earned nautical opinions.”
— Herb McCormack, editor-at-large, Cruising World
Storm Tactics Handbook, 3rd. EditionThis spring the Pardey’s will introduce the revised and expanded 3rd edition of their highly regarded Storm Tactics Handbook at presentations in four locations in California. Lin and Larry have been called, ‘the enablers’. Their books and videos have encouraged sailors of all ages to stop dreaming and start doing. The knowledge they share has been earned during the four decades they have been voyaging together, years during which they completed both eastabout and westabout circumnavigations on board their own self-built, engine-free cutters, Seraffyn and Taleisin.

The new topic for their seminars, Sixteen Ways to Keep A Lover, was chosen because most potential voyagers dream of setting sail as a couple, with the goal of sharing one of the most romantic and rewarding adventures available to people of modest means. To keep the dream working it is vital to assure both partners are enjoying the experience. This presentation highlights ways to be sure each partner gains both confidence and voyaging skills so they feel comfortable about setting sail. Also covered are ways to make sure the experience is truly a shared one, ways to keep the romance alive underway.

This talk will entertain and provide food for thought for all who sail as a couple or as part of a crew. It will be highlighted with a short slide show presentation showing some of the unique experiences cruising can add to your life.

The Pardey’s will have the first copies of their fully revised and expanded 3rd edition of Storm Tactics Handbook available at each of these seminars. This latest edition includes nine completely new chapters – among them:
  • Lessons from Cape Horn
  • An interview on storm survival and heaving to with the late Sir Peter Blake
  • Heaving-to using a Gale Rider on 55 foot Morgan’s Cloud
  • Adding Rudder Protection Stops

Mario Vittoni, US Coast Guard rescue swimmer for 14 years, in an unsolicited testimony for Storm Tactics Handbook wrote, “I have been on several rescues (and heard of many more) that would have been completely unnecessary if the sailboat captains aboard would have …practiced the skills taught by Lin and Larry Pardey. Not knowing how to heave-to in bad weather is as inexcusable as not knowing ‘red, right, return’.”
