By combining their considerable sailing skills with a thirst for adventure, the Copelands have succeeded in doing what most of us dream about: completing an incredible voyage of discovery covering over 50,000 nautical miles. The culmination of their adventures is the sharing of this odyssey. So sit back and let Liza take you with her family on a magical journey of exploration, with her very competent hands at the helm.' - Dave Miller, Olympic medallist One gloomy Fall day, tired of the rat race Liza and Andy Copeland decided to pack up their three small sons and set sail to explore the world. What began as a two-year expediition turned into a six-year adventure to 82 countries and colonies. The best-selling JUST CRUISING tells of both their land and sea experiences of the first half of the voyage, from Europe to Australia - discovering the antiquities of the Mediterranean; the challenges of crossing the Atlantic Ocean; revisiting favourite haunts in the Caribbean; transiting the Panama Canal to immerse in wildlife wonders in Galapagos; then island and atoll-hopping through the changing cultures of the South Pacific to Australia where they took part in the grande parade of Tall Ships, the first in the Southern Ocean. Besides living along with the adventure Just Cruising gives valuable information on cruising and travelling and shows the realities of taking a young family along, a must buy or excellent gift for all sailors, travellers and dreamers. 'Sailor or not you will enjoy this book. As one who ha travelled widely, I found its descriptions of different cultures, scenery, nature and family fascinating. It opes new worlds of adventure and knowledge as you travel with a family who enjoys life to the full. Its anecdotes range from hilarity to suspense - they are always entertaining and most informative. The author writes with clarity and flair, and is persuasive. So much so that the reader is tempted to abandon all and take off - as the Copelands did. Whether you sail or not, they show that you can make your dreams come true." - Lewis Perinbaum, World Development Executive Former Vice President Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA) An Executive director of the Canadian University Service Overseas (CUSO) "Inspirational" The Globe and Mail 'Vastly Informative and entertaining. The perfect gift for your would-be wanderlust." The Vancouver Courier "...stands tesament to the cruising spirit's immortality. Straightforward aproach....numerous helpful details and lively anecdotes.' Cruising World Magazine
