When I met Larry Pardey, I was a complete neophyte to Sailing. And he opened an absolutely amazing spell. He told me about Sailing off toward freedom. And I fell for his wonderful story. And I started helping him build his boat. And then one day, I thought about storms. What about storms? My imagination did run wild. I thought of clutching the tiller as we ran before raging winds, shrieking rigging, dark of night, waves crashing about us, spray flying across the deck. And, if I made one false move, I could kill us all. But I was lucky. Larry Pardey had sailed with some of the real experienced professional sailors. Men like Bob Sloan, and he'd learned of something that sounds almost like magic. A tactic that actually has the ability to break the power of the seas. And he told me about heaving-to.
