Join Lin and Larry Pardey on board Taliesin as they demonstrate valuable voyaging and ocean crossing skills.
In this tip, Larry demonstrates a quick way to deploy a stern anchor for pulling your boat back into deeper water when you run around.
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 offshore sailing tips.
Topics include gear storage, dinghy choices, warping out a stern anchor, proper life-raft storage, storm trysails, sail repairs, and other tips to help you prepare for a long voyage or ocean crossing.
Then sail along with the Pardeys on a classic trade-wind passage across the Indian Ocean toward Africa, with stops at Cocos (Keeling) Atoll, the quiet island of Rodrigues, and the remote French colony at Réunion. During the voyage Lin and Larry cover weather planning, landfall considerations, wind vanes, sail choices, crew comfort and much more.
