Along with his wife, Lin, Larry sailed over 200,000 miles, circumnavigating the world both eastabout and westabout aboard their engineless wooden sub-30ft yachts.

Their adventures aboard Seraffyn and Taleisin and their mantra ‘Go Small, Go Simple, Go Now’ inspired generations of cruisers, and their contribution towards nurturing ocean cruising in small boats won many accolades including the Ocean Cruising Club’s Lifetime Achievement Award and the Cruising Club of America’s Far Horizons Award.
