Sailing Towards the Southern CrossBook - 2017
With stories from paradise and hard-won lessons in seamanship, Taleisin's Tales reflects back to the first miles Lin and Larry gained together on their second cruising boat, taking the reader from launching and sea trials between California and the Sea of Cortez to French Polynesia, the Cook Islands, Tonga and New Zealand. In the style readers have come to know, Taleisin's Tales relates stories sometimes harrowing, sometimes cautionary, sometimes hilarious, often heart-warming - and shows how slowing the pace brings unexpected moments of clarity and joy, and that sailing across an ocean on a small boat is not easy but, with the right partner and attitude, can be beautifully rewarding.
