NEWPORT, R.I. - Dec. 16, 2014 - PRLog -- When first published in 1983, Lin and Larry Pardey's Seraffyn's European Adventure garnered critical acclaim in a range of sailing media, instantly becoming a favorite of cruising sailors - and would-be crusing sailors - worldwide. Today the book stands as a classic of the genre.

"Europe gave Lin and Larry a warm and civilized welcome, and they responded with keen appreciation and observation ...They had, or else took, the time to fit into local environments, talk to local people, and reflect on what they saw. The result is a travel and cruising book above the average." - Lloyds List, London

"Lin Pardey has ... in her deceptively simple and fresh-faced style, told the story of an unusual and appealing marriage partnership, a special way of life. Yachtsmen will enjoy the technical description of the problems of maneuvering in the tight harbors and unmapped channels ... the perils of heavy seas in a small boat. But what is remarkable is that she can draw a nonsailor into these special subjects and make them as comprehensible and absorbing to a landlubber as they would be to someone about to set out on the same itinerary in a small boat of his own." - R Sokolov, New York Times Book Review

"If we had waited until we could afford a 45-foot yacht and all its luxuries, we might never have gone cruising, the Pardeys explain. They certainly prove that one need not be wealthy to see the world. The book shows their optimism, endurance, and resourcefulness. As they sum up: the whole idea is freedom. Go small, go simple, go now." - Carolyn Rustemeyer, Cruising World Magazine

New Street Nautical Audio is proud to bring this important and brilliant book to a new audience in an audio edition superbly narrated by Sonja Field.

Join Lin and Larry as from England they proceed into the Baltic, Denmark, Sweden, Finland, and Germany. During their voyage they dealt with armed guards on the Polish waterfront who watched while the people greeted them with flowers and fruit. They weathered a fierce mast-under broach in a Baltic gale. And experienced great friendships found in harbors large and small.

The New Street Nautical Audio edition of Lin and Larry's now classic book - the second in their famous Seraffyn series - will prove a pleasure for all sailors, including armchair sailors! The book runs 7 hours and 56 minutes, and is available from Audible, iTunes and Amazon.
