Join cruising legends Lin and Larry Pardey 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.
Beautifully narrated by Sonja Feld, 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, even armchair sailors!

the usual for a reader of pardey's adventures story-telling: light, simple, easy listening
I liked the numerous snapshots of life in small ports in the UK, Scandinavia and the Iberian peninsula.
The narrator was painful to hear. The poor woman decided (or was asked) to render dialogs with foreigners in voice and accent imitations that were border-line insulting. Imagine old Englishmen speaking like decrepit morons, north Europeans speaking like a Mel Brooks parody of Nazis and easter Europeans speaking like KGB agents in cold war spy movies...
