This book (Third Edition) is a distillation of what Lin and Larry learned over more than 47 years of sailing. Together they have covered over 200,0000 miles on board their two cutters Serrafyn and Taleisin, and on scores of other boats they either deliverd or raced.
Lin and Larry tell how they have sailed in comfort and safety without the benefit of a large cash outlay. (Pay as you go, earn as you go!)
They share stories of the people they have met along the way, and the experiences that shaped their lives.
The first two editions of this book have helped thousands of people who dreamed of setting sail, whether planning a weekend voyage or a circumnavigation. In this third Edition, Lin continues to share knowledge gained in recent years- she takes us to new places, shares new experiences and notes new equipment. And she does it with the same gentle spirit and enthusiasm for travel under sail.. Armed with what she is learning as she explores the far corners of the Tasman Sea, she has extensively updated and revised the information from the original edition and added several new chapters. Balanced by chapters written by Larry nearly forty years ago, this edition also features and includes Lin's discussion of the lessons learned as she and Larry negotiated the stormy waters around Cape Horn.
Whether you are setting off to explore your own coast, or planning a trip across the Pacific, this book could be the catalyst you need to cut ties binding you to shore.

CAPABLE CRUISER. Fully revised third edition
By Lin and Larry Pardey, Paperback,153mm x 229mm, 392 pages, black & white photographs and drawings.
This third edition of a cruising classic includes nine new chapters with such advice as: sixteen ways to encourage your lover to share your dream; strategies for turning sudden engine failure into a minor incident; choosing safety equipment; repairing rigging at sea. The original chapters have been updated and many are expanded to ensure that the information will be helpful for everyone who dreams of cruising - whether now or soon.
Capable cruiser is a logical extension of the Pardeys' The Self-Sufficient Sailor, with more emphasis on semanship underway, including careful analysis of extreme anchoring situations and solutions for mitigating them. Underlying each and every chapter is the warmth and encouragement that spurred Herb McCormick, editor-at-large for Cruising World, to label Lin and Larry Pardey "the enablers".
