If you have ever done any serious cruising or thought about doing some, Lin and Larry Pardey have probably popped up on your radar.

Along the way they have written dozens of magazine articles, 11 books and produced five informational videos. They have won a variety of awards and still hold the record for the smallest boat to have circumnavigated contrary to the prevailing winds around all the great southern capes.
