As Long as It’s Fun Book Cover

Chronicling the remarkable lives of circumnavigators Lin and Larry Pardey — the modern-day Lewis and Clark of the cruising community — could not have been an easy task. With more than 200,000 miles under their keel, the couple have crisscrossed the globe (twice) in self-built, engineless wooden boats. They’ve raced against legends and penned nearly a dozen nautical books and hundreds of articles about their adventures and well-earned life lessons. Still, author and senior editor of_ Cruising World_ magazine Herb McCormick is somehow able to fit their story into the 266-page tell-all As Long as It’s Fun: The Epic Voyages and Extraordinary Times of Lin and Larry Pardey ($18.95).

If you were to summarize this new release in a word, it would be honest. Not simply a recap of the couple’s accomplishments and happiest memories, McCormick’s story uses gripping imagery to put you in the couple’s cockpit during their worst fights, toughest struggles, near breakups and life-threatening situations. A tale of adversity and triumph, As Long as It’s Fun is sure to inspire and ignite your wanderlust.
