JUST CRUISING - EUROPE TO AUSTRALIA. A Family Travels the World By Liza Copeland

One gloomy Fall day, tired of the rat race, Liza and Andy Copeland decided to pack up their house and set sail with their three young sons in their 38’ Beneteau Bagheera. What began as a two-year cruise to the Mediterranean and Caribbean turned into a six-year circumnavigation around the world visiting 82 countries and colonies.

Just Cruising – Europe to Australia, an award-winning Canadian bestseller, is a candid account of the realities of offshore cruising.  It includes the Mediterranean, TransAtlantic in the ARC, the Caribbean, South and Central America, the Panama Canal, Galapagos and South Pacific Ocean and sailing  with the Tall Ships in Australia.

Not only portraying strategies of ocean cruising, accounts of their experiences ashore are included, along with details of the people, their cultures, history, fauna, flora and local cuisine. Final chapters include a discussion of pre-cruising choices and cruising realities, along with technical guidance about the boat and equipment.
