Jackie Parry

Jackie has just returned to Australia after exploring the French canals on a Dutch barge with her Australian husband.

Originally from the UK, Jackie is now an adopted Australian. She grew up with horses in the UK until her world was shattered with a heartbreaking bereavement. Disillusioned with life she ran away to Australia and met and married Noel. They decided to buy a boat and set sail. So within her first year living in a foreign land, she was getting used to a foreign husband, and a foreign life on board!

Mariah II took Jackie & Noel around the world. Pyewacket II (purchased in San Francisco) took them across the Pacific Ocean for a second time on a more southerly route. Adventures include The Great Loop in the USA plus Canada's Great Lakes and the French Canals.

Between boats they adopted 5 standardbred horses and set off into the Australian bush with just the horses and their gear on their backs... "an extraordinary experience."

As a commercial captain Jackie has worked internationally, and has been a Marine Rescue skipper. She has also taught commercial maritime. She co-wrote a pilot book (in America) and several hundred magazine articles worldwide. Cruisers' AA (accumulated acumen) was Jackie (and Noel's) first self-published book.

New Street Communications Publishers has picked up most of Jackie's books and released audio versions.
