Course for Adventure is a collaborative effort between author/adventurer Brian Hancock, founder of Great Circle Publishing Company and Virtually Canadian a vibrant website and internet marketing company that specializes in reaching a broad audience through social networks.
For too long sailors have had to dig deep to find good sailing stories. Modern box bookstores barely, if ever, carried a good selection of sailing books yet there is a thirst for not only sailing narratives but also for well produced how-to technical books. We plan to change all that. Virtually Canadian will seek to find each and every sailor scattered across the globe and give them a place to go to find what they want in sailing books. For traditionalists many hard copy books be available; for those with an eye toward the future (anyone who traded paper charts for electronic ones fall into this category) these books will be available as an electronic download. We will start by bringing you best selling books from past years and slowly add new titles.

About Great Circle Publishing Company
Great Circle Publishing Company is a subsidiary of Great Circle Enterprises. The company, formed in 1998, was originally named Great Circle Press and specialized in short run sailing narratives. Press was changed to Publishing Company to reflect the dynamic changes happening in the publishing industry.
Just a few short years ago you needed a press and a publishing house to produce a book. Desktop publishing quickly changed that and anyone with some computer savvy, a decent laptop and a small budget could become a publisher. Once again that is all changing. Electronic hybrids between books and videos instantly down-loadable to a Kindle or iPad is the future and Great Circle Publishing Company plans to be a part of that future.
