Get Ready to Cruise - Offshore Sailing

Join Lin and Larry Pardey as they share ideas and hints to make your boat safer, easier to sail, and more enjoyable to cruise.

In trailer tip, Larry Pardey describes the bow roller he has attached with large bolts to the hefty bowsprit for handling the side load during anchor retrieval. He points out two modifications he's added: a restraining bolt that prevents the chain from jumping off the roller and a hole to attach a snatch block for deploying a parachute anchor when heaving to.

On board their 29 foot wooden cutter, Taliesin - the boat that has been their home for over 100,000 miles of voyaging – the Pardey's demonstrate many more tips including galley upgrades, table design ideas, comfortable seating arrangements, and ways to improve ventilation below deck.

On deck, the Pardey's demonstrate how to make sail and ground-tackle handling 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.

In the Pardey Playlist, watch all five of Lin and Larry Pardey's Offshore Sailing videos, plus more video interviews and clips from the Pardey's remarkable sailing career.
