Exhibitor:      L & L Publications                 Booth Location:       M5

Product:        Books

Description: Lin and Larry Pardey’s hugely popular and encouraging book, the Self Sufficient Sailor, has been revitalized and expanded by more than 40%. “This has been an exciting project for me,” said Lin, “especially as I have spent much of the past two years voyaging through the western Pacific on a boat that has not only an engine, but much of the electronic gear Larry and I chose to sail without. This let me evaluate the advantages and disadvantages of what many folks call “modern equipment. Better yet, it put me in touch with the people who are out cruising right now. And it is exciting to see that there are young and young at heart folks setting off voyaging on limited budgets and finding fine adventures.”

The Revised and expanded 3rd edition of Self Sufficient Sailor will be official launched November 1st. Early copies will available directly from Lin at the US Sailboat Show in Annapolis and signed early copies are available by post if ordered before September 15th from
