'Cuba - rarely visited photo by Freakygaming.com'    .

Biggest news of the week for Sail-World is that now we have stretched past our 2.2 world-wide readership of English-speaking sailors to readers of the 15 top languages in the world, meaning we can now reach more than 90% of the world's sailors with our news. A very exciting world is developing for Internet journalism, as we help google translate to do better for Sail-World.

Cuba is a rarely visited destination for cruising sailors, but this week we bring you reports from some sailors enjoying the sights.

The Cruising Club of America has announced their annual awards and we'll be featuring the profile and achievements of each of them over the next few weeks. This week it is the winners of the 'Far Horizon' Award for ten years and 38,000 miles of cruising.

Captains Mate - going gangbusters -  .. .  

The Blue Planet Odyssey – a world cruising rally with its focus on the climate change and the environment – is shaping to be a ground breaking event, starting next year. This week British sailing guru and rally organiser Jimmy Cornell answers why one of the routes chosen is the hazardous Northwest Passage.

Soldini, who now holds the record, New York to San Francisco via the Horn -  .. .  
An Italian sailor now holds the record for the New York to San Francisco route via Cape Horn.

Now there's a challenge. Isn't there an American sailor out there who would like to grab it back?

While sailing hero Pete Goss was completing a sailing kayak circumnavigation of Tasmania, the investigation into the tragic sinking of the tall ship Bounty was – and still is – taking place.

This week read evidence presented that the timbers were rotted before she set off.



Autopilots are invaluable for the cruising sailor - for serious, and not so serious, reasons -  .. .  

Again we have the latest info on new and green products and some fine advice from your fellow cruising sailors. West Marine have announced two environment-protecting innovative products as their 'Green Products for 2013'; America's National Marine Manufacturers Association also announced some Innovation Awards; Neil Langford examines EPIRBs available on the market and discovers some surprising – and disturbing – aspects; read how autopilots are getting smarter and more flexible; and John Jamieson is telling us all to 'think inverted!' when preparing to go sailing. What does that mean? Read the story!

Sweet sailing!
