Join Andy and Liza Copeland as they sail from the Mediterranean to the Caribbean via Morocco, the Canary Islands, the Cape Verdes, Senegal, the Gambia (including 150 miles up the River), Guinea, Bissau, then across the Equator to Brazil and along the north coast of South America, including its rivers, to the Caribbean. This voyage offers a different and intriguing way of crossing the Atlantic, and our well known presenters can describe a fascinating collection of cultures as well as true insight into adventure cruising and the self-sufficiency skills required.
Former BCA members, Liza and Andy Copeland are lifelong cruisers and racers. After marrying aboard the classic yacht, Ticonderoga, they explored the world, which included a 6-year circumnavigation with their three children, in their Beneteau 38, Bagheera, which has taken them 124,000 nautical miles to 114 countries.
Liza is the best-selling author of three cruising books—“Just Cruising”, “Still Cruising” and “Comfortable Cruising”, which recounts their world travels and describes their voyage around North and Central America. The fourth, “Cruising for Cowards,” co-authored with Andy, is their practical and technical A–Z for cruisers, whether voyaging offshore or cruising the coast.
Liza also writes for many yachting magazines, presents at major boat shows worldwide, and gives frequent talks for a variety of clubs and organizations. When not travelling the world, both Andy and Liza love continuing to explore the Pacific Northwest.
