SLAM Kiwi Match in Trapani, Italy  Logan Fraser
Welcome to Sail-World.com's New Zealand newsletter for 2 July 2010

Plenty of local content in today's edition - mostly from overseas as the young New Zealand sailors report in, ahead of the many world and international championships which get underway in the next few weeks.

Many of these stories are coming in via the submission system on the home page of www.sail-world.com - all you need is an internet connection to just load and go!

Fosters Harken have also launched a couple of great new products - a micro compass and a new compact flotation jacket. Must haves a for all serious dinghy sailors. There's a video on the compass, too.

SKIPPER! Visibility's poor, can you plot us a course home from here?  

Coastguard Boating Education Services have announced a new range of courses, aimed at people who wish to tune up their skills, or obtain some new ones - over the winter.

From the deep South the Sail-Ski Regatta is on once again. In this edition we have the details of this unique New Zealand regatta - set in a winter paradise at Wanaka.
