On this week’s episode I had the opportunity to sit down and do my second interview with Lin and Larry Pardey of sailing fame.

During the 45 minute discussion, I peppered the Pardeys with questions such as:

  • Top 10 mistakes made in offshore cruising
  • How to prepare for a circumnavigation
  • How to select the right boat for blue water cruising
  • Your favorite destinations around the world

We have a great time and the answers were amazing (as you might expect).

You can listen to the previous interviews I did with the Pardeys at HOWB 052.
