'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.

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

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!
