    Larry Pardey talks about the importance of practicing heaving to before you set off across an ocean. Heaving to allows you to park your boat at sea in any weather so you and your crew can rest, eat, and make repairs. Practicing heaving to includes becoming familiar with setting up your para-anchor and other gear at the dock so you know how it all works and you can check that all lines are running clear. Then you should practice heaving to underway, preferably in at least 30 knots of wind. Larry's comments are followed by some historic footage of the Pardey's sailing with a very nice classical 12 string guitar background.discount price.

  4. In this exclusive interview with TheSailingChannel.TV, Cruising World Senior Editor, Herb McCormick describes his new biography about Lin and Larry Pardey, "As Long as It's Fun: The Epic Voyages and Extraordinary Times of Lin and Larry Pardey".

    The Pardeys are renowned cruising sailors who began their sailing adventures in the early 1960's. They've circumnavigated east to west and west to east, and cruised north and south from the southern oceans to Scandinavia - all on engineless wooden sailboats they built themselves. Winners of numerous awards and honors, the Pardeys have written thirteen books, hundreds of magazine articles, and made five sailing documentaries based on their voyages.

    McCormick recounts the Pardey's remarkable sailing career—from their early days in Southern California to to their current life in a quiet cove in New Zealand. Through interviews with their families, friends, and critics, he delves deeply into the couple’s often-controversial opinions, sometimes-tenuous marriage, and amazing list of accomplishments. This biography is as much a love story as it is a sea yarn. A great read hard to put down once you begin.

    A film by Eric and Susan Hiscock.
    In the late 1950's, very few "middle class" sailors had taken small sailing craft on long voyages. British Sailors, Eric and Susan Hiscock became pioneers in making long trans-oceanic passages in a small sailboat to what was then quite remote destinations. Their sailing adventures paved the way for future generations of cruising sailors who would follow in their wake, making blue water passage-making the more common experience it has become today.

    The Hiscocks shared their sailing adventures in several books and made this 16mm color documentary about their second circumnavigation aboard their 30 foot sloop, Wanderer III. The couple departed from Yarmouth Isle of Wight on the 19th of July 1959 and returned on August 8th, 1962. Prior to their departure, the BBC provided some camera training, a 16mm windup camera, and 4000 feet of color film stock. During their 30,189 mile circumnavigation, Eric and Susan meticulously filmed their voyage and their many land falls. On their return, the BBC edited a 91-minute documentary based on a script and narration written by Eric. The finished film aired on BBC television in January 1963.

    Working with the Beaulieu Film and Video Library at the UK National Motor Museum Trust, TheSailingChannel.TV has restored "Beyond the West Horizon" and digitally remastered it to HD.
