Jackie and Noel Parry have sailed around the world one-and-a-half times. They’ve traversed The Great Loop in America and spent three years exploring the European canals (once on a sailboat and once onboard a 1930s Dutch barge).

They are commercial skippers, working internationally on many, and varied, boats.

Noel’s a Marine Surveyor and Jackie is the ‘new’ co-founder of SisterShip Magazine (why ‘new’? find out here).

They’ve written a few books and articles (practical, pilot, technical, destination, adventures etc).

They have both been instructors of professional level courses for several years and are now building their home in the far south NSW coast region.
