As Long As It's Fun
In As Long as It’s Fun, the biography of Lin and Larry Pardey, Herb McCormick recounts their remarkable sailing career—from their early days in Southern California to their two circumnavigations to their current life in a quiet cove in New Zealand.
Through interviews with their families, friends, and critics, McCormick delves deeply into the couple’s often-controversial opinions, sometimes-tenuous marriage, and amazing list of accomplishments. As Long as It’s Fun is as much a love story as it is a sea yarn, and, like all such stories, it’s not without complications . . . which makes it not only a sailing tale but also a human one.

Storm Tactics Handbook, 3rd Ed.
BOOK $22.95 + S&H
Kindle Version $9.99
Storm Tactics HandBook 3rd. ed.
In a storm at sea, luck is highly biased toward the sailor who has a plan. So write Lin and Larry Pardey in this, the third edition of their highly regarded Storm Tactics Handbook. As in the first two editions of this book, they describe their concerns about the tendency of modern sailors to discard the classic methods used to bring sailing vessels of all sizes from vast clipper ships to tiny yachts through amazingly strong winds and heavy seas. There is only one storm tactic that has the ability to sap the power of breaking seas, they explain. With clear and concise diagrams, they proceed to show how heaving-to works and how even the most modern of yachts can be made to heave-to, whether with only sail power or with the assistance of a sea anchor.

Seraffyn's Mediterranean Adventure, 30th Anniversary Edition
Lin and Larry Pardey s first book, Cruising in Seraffyn is credited with launching 50,000 dreams. This third book in the Seraffyn series chronicles the three years spent exploring Ulysses wine-colored sea and clearly illustrates how they kept that dream afloat. Lin and Larry meander under sail, eastward from the rocky monolith of Gibraltar to the imposing stone ramparts of Malta. Along the way they share stories of the kaleidoscope of people who filled their days, from the naval officers who joined them for day races to the officials who helped turn them into smugglers (not drugs but a boat full of yeast, flour and vegetables and eventually twenty dollars worth of noodles!) But it is not just the shore side stories that will keep you intrigued, just as compelling are the clear concise descriptions of the days and nights they spent at sea.

Their routes had always been determined by the need to find the work to support their cruising life-style or the desire to see an island spoken of by some favorite writer.
