9780969769019: Still Cruising- A Family Travels the World: Australia to Asia, Africa and America

The copelands did what many of us can only dream of - one gloomy Canadian Winter they decided to pack up, rent out their home, buy a boat and go traveling. Liza, her husband Andy and their young children left their regular lifestyle to go sailing on their 40' boat 'Bagheera' for two years. They found their new life so exhilarating they stayed away for six years, completing a circumnavigation of the world and visiting 82 countries. STILL CRUISING is the sequel to the bestselling JUST CRUISING. Here their journey continues from Australia to Indonesia, Singapore, Malyasia, Thailand, The Andaman Islands, Sri Lanka, India, the Maldives, Chagos, the Seychelles, down the East African coast to Madagascar, around the Cape of Good Hope, then back through the Caribbean and Cuba to Florida.

Often sailing to remote and little known destinations, STILL CRUISING recounts some of the Copeland's richest, most exotic cruising and traveling adventures, including their greatest challenges at sea. It also includes a 'How-to' section and glossary.

About the Author:

Liza Copeland grew up in England and studied Social Work at Trinity College, Dublin University. After emigrating to Canada she obtained a Teaching Certificate and Masters Degree in Special Education at the University of British Columbia. Her working career has included Vocational Rehabilitation, Medical Social Work and Educational Psychology, mostly in hospital settings. Since returning from her circumnaviation she has become a writer and speaker for both boating and travel to a wide variety of organizations.

Sailboat racing since she was 9 years old Liza has sailed in a variety of boats in University, National and World Championships, as well as in ocean races. At the Sunfish World Championships in Venezuela she met Andy, a former fighter pilot in the Royal Navy and experienced sailor, and after running charter boats together for two years they were married aboard the famous yacht 'Ticonderoga'. With deliveries, a circumnavigation, cruising their home waters of the Pacific Northwest and a recent trip around North and Central America they have cruised over 85,000 nautical miles together.

Review:

As world-wide marine photographers we've met innumerable sailors but few have such interesting tales to tell as the Copelands. Excellent reading for cheering up those gloomy winter evenings. -- Keith and Ken Beken, Beken of Cowes Marine Photographers (1888), England

Beyond the considerable accomplishment of just taking off for parts unknown, this remarkable family does so with a refreshing spirit of calm elan. Author Copeland reports with a clever mix of dialogue and description that gets the reader to know her crew/family and then introduced far away places through their eyes and reactions. -- Gary Hoyt writes a monthly column in Sailing World Magazine. Author and designer, he is a former Olympic sailor and Sunfish World Champion, who founded Freedom yachts.

Liza Copeland and her family have live my dream. The author's delightful descriptions of the second half of their six-year sailing odyssey through 82 countries takes the reader to many places only a boat would reach. Because the Copelands were determined to travel inland wherever they could, the book is equally fascinating as a travel adventure. But be warned! STILL CRUISING is the stuff that stirs others to act out their own dreams. -- Kerry McPhedran, Award Winning Canadian Travel Writer and Editor, whose freelance magazine work has taken her around the world and on sailboats
