Breakaway transcends Americans passions for sports and casino gambling as it follows two professional hockey team owners and the most-storied trophy in all of sports. No one can lift hockeys Stanley Cup on his own. Winning a championship takes talented athletes, committed owners, creative executives, and enthusiastic fans. For the Pittsburgh Penguins, it also meant breaking away from tradition. With team owners desperate to replace the leagues oldest rink and leakiest arena, the Penguins win the rights to draft the hottest player in a generation. A Pittsburgh legend returns to the team on and off the ice to lead them into the future. But how to turn around the fortunes of this troubled franchise? Breakaway tells the story of how the Penguins went from bankruptcy and last place to a profitable new arena and a championship by taking chances others never considered and risking everything to win it all.

In 1980 Lin Pardey and her husband Larry came to California looking for a good spot to build a boat, test Lin’s skills as a writer and taste the apparent security life ashore could offer. Nestled in a rocky outcropping of winding, sparsely populated dirt roads, 60 miles from the sea and 50 miles from Los Angeles, Bull Canyon would seem an unlikely place for boat-building. But when Lin and Larry set eyes on the abandoned stone cottage at the top of a rutted, dusty lane, it was love at first sight. The house was certainly a fixer-upper, but there was plenty of room to build a boat, not to mention peace, quiet, and an abundance of natural beauty. They knew they’d come home.
“When it comes to the subject of capable cruising, the Pardeys have literally and figuratively written the book on it. The lessons they’ve learned after tens of thousands of miles at sea are hard-earned, clearly imparted, and totally invaluable.” – Herb McCormick, Cruising World
