Introducing you to Lin Pardey - she is one of Kawau Island's well known 'famous people.'
Lin has written many books on world cruising in a timber yacht that her and her husband Larry built back in USA.
Talk about contrasts. Helped Ian Smith get his historic 18 footer ready for the Hobart wooden boat festival. Then off to government house for an official welcome. Worth being a bit formal just to see inside this historic building, the delicious oysters were a bonus. Then off for a delightful dinner with Roy Blow and friends. I'll be at historic 18 booth 10 to noon next three days.
