qNothing can keep you cruising longer, safer, and on a lower budget than self-sufficiency, and no one knows more about the subject than Lin and Larry Pardeyq -- Tom Linskey, Editor, Sail Magazine This book is exactly what the title says, a distillation of lessons the Pardeys have learned from 200, 000 miles of sailing on board their own boats and others they have delivered or r aced. Lin and Larry show how they have sailed in comfort and safety without large cash outlays -- on a pay-as-you-earn-as-you-go plan and by simplifying. A sailor who relies on expensive equipment is risking disaster. A sailor's reliance must be on self first and on electronics and mechanics last. For example, do not count on your safety harness to keep you attached to the boat. Do, however, learn the how, why and what of not falling overboard in the first place. Know the proper layout and gear that will eliminate the need to take risks in any weather. How to learn basic sailing and seamanship, to choose a boat and equipment designed for safe, comfortable voyaging; how to learn maintenance and repair, inspection of rigging and equipment, sailing without an engine -- these are what the Pardeys teach. This is an essential book for coastal and offshore sailors and has been revised to add valuablle information for sailoros oof the 21st century.aquot;The essential book for the independent sailor--a distillation of what the Pardeys have learned in their years of voyaging in their famous Seraffyn and Taleisin.aquot;--Cover.
