Inaugural Cruising Masterclass...the ultimate for seasickness...more


'AAA Cruising Masterclass at SIBS'    .
This week we're announcing first ever Cruising Masterclass to be held at the Sydney International Boat Show. Gathering together some of the best (and most entertaining) cruising gurus from the east coast of Australia and New Zealand, there will be a two-day intensive series of seminars designed just for the cruising sailor. Racing sailors converting to cruising and cruising sailors themselves will find this series of vital interest.

It will be brought to you as a side benefit from attendance at the Sydney International Boat Show, and while in this inaugural year attendance is free, registration for the seminars is essential to secure your place in the private classroom. More about the subjects to be covered in the story below.


Talking of boat shows, there's an avalanche of stories come in from the Sanctuary Cove Boat Show from Sail-World's range of journalists attending. If you read all those articles you'll feel as though you've been there - kinda.

It must be one of the greatest inventions ever for the cruising sailor - the new App that can banish seasickness. It seemed unbelievable to me when I first heard about it, but as seasickness has something to do with the ears and this App plays you music which disguises a noise which is meant to undo the effects of seasickness, it just could sound logical. The story is fascinating – I'd love to hear from anyone who has tried it and found that is works for them.

Could a mere App cure this? -  .. .  

The indomitable Jeanne Socrates just keeps sailing on, aiming for the third time for a solo, non-stop, unassisted voyage around the world. Almost everything on her boat has broken – she only has half a main, the autopilot has packed it in, she is having to rely on ham radio buffs for her communications – and that's just the beginning. Undaunted, Jeanne is heading for Victoria - and Victory - in Canada. Read the story...

If you love sailing and the environment too, there's something very practical you can do - join the 22m ketch Yukon on her sail up the east coast of Australia, skippered by well-known sailor David Pryce, collecting data from the sea for a Monash University-supported study. Drop the day job, get adventurous and go!

Yukon showing what she can do -  .. .  

John Jamieson is back with some safety advice about the 'bight line' and how not to be hurt when a sheet or fitting breaks; Swan have announced a new 'pure' range of cruising boats; and there's a humorous story from Britain's Royal National Lifesaving Institution (RNLI) about the extraordinary convolutions of some rescues.

Read on, enjoy, and...

Sweet autumn sailing!
