Pardeys Featured in Premier Episode.

Cruising Has NO LIMITS

The premier episode features extended excerpts from Cruising Has No Limits by legendary cruising couple Lin and Larry Pardey. The film shows Lin and Larry skimming before caressing trade winds, savoring tropical landfalls, and evading stormy seas. But their stories of ocean voyaging are much richer than the typical image of the cruising life under sail. The Pardeys take viewers to remote corners of southern Africa, then onto Brazil for some incredible island cruising south of Rio, then north to Ireland’s music-filled shores where they enjoy a summer of history, classic sailing, Irish music, and new friendships.
