Lin and Larry Pardey demonstrate methods to help you bring your boat and crew safely through storms. Join them near South Africa's Cape of Storms to watch a live demonstration of setting and retrieving a para-anchor, then sail on board Taleisin during Lin & Larry's rounding of Cape Horn with storm sails in action in 70-knot winds. They demonstrate technical details of storm tactics for both modern and classic boats. Learn how to prepare your crew and boat to eliminate fear and face heavy weather with a plan. Learn how and when to use the sailor's safety valve, heaving-to, with or without a para-anchor. They also discuss gear and equipment, plus special sails for heavy weather
