Sail-World.com : Med changes, tether danger, Ron Holland's latest, boatyard goof-ups
Med changes, tether danger, Ron Holland's latest, boatyard goof-ups

Missing in Mexico waters -  .. .  
More news this week about the cruising situation in the Mediterranean – Greece's yachts are leaving it in droves for Turkey and sometimes Montenegro where the welcome is warmer and less expensive, but in Turkey too the regulations are not quite as yacht-friendly as they used to be as cruising sailors are caught up in the new 90-day-out-of-180-day visa regulations. Italy, on the other hand, has seen the light and removed any new tax on visiting yachts.

AMVER (who? - read the story!) is in the news for yet another rescue of cruising sailors, and a MAIB report on a sailing incident throws some light, among other things, on the potential danger of tethers if they are not used at the shorter length when possible.

Much good practical information and reminders this week too. A piece on safety in the boatyard, making the point that concrete is harder than water, John Jamieson talks about small easy things you can do so that you're always ready for an emergency; and some reminders about shore-power cords and their own safety issues.

You may not be immediately in the market for a 106ft yacht, but drooling over Ron Holland's new Kestrel is free, and the missing sailor who sailed solo into waters known to be a haven for drug deals is a salient reminder to check the waters you sail in just as carefully as you check the suburbs you walk in.

Finally, Ocean Watch's Essay on Climate Change misconceptions and realities is a must-read for all.

Sweet sailing!
