Taleisin’s Tales: Sailing Towards the Southern Cross
by Pardey, Lin & Larry Pardey
A wonderful tale about the construction and voyages of the Pardey’s "Taleisin", their second bluewater cruising boat and their home for 28 years. They set off from Bull Canyon, California, and during their voyaging visited French Polynesia, the Cook Islands, and New Zealand’s Kawau Island. This book shares how the liveaboard life can pair glimpses of paradise with hard-won lessons in seamanship–and though not easy, can be beautifully rewarding.
