VOYAGE OF A LIFETIME
Around the World in a Homemade Boat
A life with freedom of spirit, pride in achievement, rewarded with worldwide friendships
A city boy meets a country girl who always says ‘yes’ to an adventure, and together they migrate to Australia, where they build a boat in a backyard that carries them and their two young sons around the world in ever-increasing circles.
These voyages of education take the children to their final years of high school.
Zoom ahead thirty years, now they are a clan with little ones needing nourishment that’s easily found in their fathers’ history. So, Poppi and Nani combined their sons’ journals with stories they wrote upon the waves around the world.
To Africa for a safari in the last wild kingdom.
To the Galapagos
for a wander through the intricacies of nature.
Then Rapa Nui
to witness the results of over-population.
Sailing everywhere in between
contemplating life, eternity,
and the marvellous creation.
Accompanied by sea fairies
whispering their ageless secrets.
Adding historical notes and dramatizing the scary bits created a most amazing coming of age saga.
Inspirational nourishment for young minds – and those who love life and Earth.

AUSTRALIA - SAILING - ADVENTURE
One of the world’s greatest adventures – Following Flinders wake around Australia – 9,000 nautical miles across six climatic zones. Jack and Jude have been exploring Earth for more than 40 years and in Two’s a Crew we search our homeland of Australia comparing it with what we had seen on early travels. Our homemade yacht takes us through crocodile-infested waters to some of the world’s oldest rock paintings, into pristine coral atolls, and through Hell’s Gates itself.
True Stories from the Sea and Faraway Places
An odyssey lasting far longer than ever imagined.
AUD$34 includes delivery worldwide (zones 1 - 7)
Reflections in a Sailor’s Eyes follows our exploration of life through a series of sixteen short stories, starting with first becoming Jack and Jude on our African Honeymoon in 1969, a five-month overland journey from England to South Africa in a derelict VW van. Adding further dimensions are stories and snippets from our maturing years in the same vessel we home built in 1973. Banyandah
A book for all who like adventures, courage, love, and encouragement
What was our most frightening moment? Our greatest storm? Pirates?
How did we raise our children afloat from infancy to young men?
In Where Wild Winds Blow, we recall unforgettable highlights of our sea roving life while taking Banyandah on a challenging and rewarding exploration of the Australian islands and coastline exposed to the Great Southern Ocean.
The simplest and best ideas complied from the building, maintaining and managing vessels for forty years. Illustrated with photographs, diagrams and in Jude’s unique style. As Cap’n Jack says, “Best take her word, she’s the one that keeps Banyandah in top shape.”
