In this week’s episode of Good Jibes, Latitude 38‘s Nicki Bennett catches up with Lin Pardey to chat about Lin’s legendary life of sailing, giving back, and adventure. Lin has sailed over 200,000 nautical miles, completed two circumnavigations, and had many more adventures of a lifetime with her late husband, Larry Pardey.

Nicki and Lin talk about how to modify your boat to suit your needs and build confidence as a sailor, what size boat to get, being a pioneer in tiny living, and everything from living in the Kalahari to attending a rodeo in Vanuatu.
