Lin and Larry Pardey completed their against-the-wind rounding of the Great Southern Capes on board their engineless 29-foot Taleisin, weathering nine days of storm-force winds to reach Puerto Montt in Chile. There they interviewed several high-latitude voyagers, prepared the narrative, and shot further detailed footage to complete the Storm Tactics video, a project Lin and Larry conceived almost ten years ago. Additional footage for this 90-minute program has been provided by Australia's WinzTV. Their dramatic images include aerial and off-the-boat views of small boats sailing in 70-know winds (Force 12) in the Bass Straits, north of Tasmania. Besides actual storm tactics, the program includes information on securing gear, checking rigging, and gaining confidence before setting sail.
