Description: Of course you're not a coward, you are planning to go cruising! However, there must be some reason why you haven't left the dock. Maybe you have information overload on boats and equipment, or are overwhelmed by the decisions of leaving the real world. Perhaps you are worried about whether you will actually enjoy life afloat. If you have any of these concerns and more Cruising for Cowards is for you.
Rather than overwhelming with technicalities the Copelands have focussed on the strategies, boats and equipment that are preferred by those who are experienced cruisers. Written to meet the needs of both coastal sailors and circumnavigators, they answer common questions such as: What kind of boat to buy and how to find it? What equipment is necessary? How much cruising costs, how funds are managed and work along the way. How cruisers provision, maintain their boats, plan routes to avoid storms, communicate with home, cope with the constant requirements of travel and live together on a small boat 24 hours a day.
Liza, an educational psychologist and boating seminar speaker, and Andy, formerly a fighter pilot in the Royal Navy and currently a yacht broker, are both life-long cruisers and racers and have sailed over 70,000 nautical miles together. Their six-year circumnavigation with their three children is recounted in the best selling books Just Cruising and Still Cruising and in Just Cruising, the video.
Since returning they have been deluged with questions on how to cruise successfully; hence the writing of Cruising for Cowards. The topics covered reflect the areas of greatest concern. They are listed in alphabetical order and the Table of Contents gives a detailed account of all subheadings.
With its entertaining personal anecdotes that illustrate both technical and practical issues, together with Harold's hilarious cartoons, you will find this book not only gives a wealth of realistic cruising information, it also marvellously entertains.
