Hawaii comes to Sydney - 09/04/06 © Andrea Francolini Photography http://www.afrancolini.com/
Surf City, sailing photographer Andrea Francolini was shore side in Sydney at the weekend. Check the action on his photo story today.

Lots of interesting news; the 18 footers, the Volvo Race, Katie Spithill wins her second NZ match racing title, Clippers leave Qingdao, Australians doing well at the Flying Dutchman Worlds.

The Easter Bunny is almost here, that means it’s the Brisbane to Gladstone Race, the Three Peaks Race and we will have more reports from north Queensland where there will be action aplenty in Airlie Beach and Port Hinchinbrook.

Sail-World continues to expand. Launched only three months ago our Cruising site has been a huge success, now we will be splitting Sail-World Cruising into two; Cruising International and Cruising Australia.

TetraMedia, the publisher of Sail-World.com is looking for a marine industry journalist with sailing and power-boating experience. As TetraMedia is 'Now' we are ready for the step into Powerboating.

The Power of the Internet is now allowing the delivery of major Sail-World and Sail-World Cruising feature articles, up to 4,000 words with 10-15 pictures and with audio and vision inclusions coming shortly. Similar content will be seen on our new Powerboating site.

Broadband Internet and Skype allows writers to be anywhere For instance our Sail-World Cruising Editor has been working from Istanbul and will soon head across the Med to arrive in the US before Christmas. Our UK-Europe Editor divides his time between Spain and the UK. Our Feature writer could be based in Australia, the UK, or the USA, but be travelling internationally.

The Marine Feature Writer position will suit an experienced free-lance writer, initially with 40 – 60 hours per month available; hours flexible.

Races, Regattas and Disruptive Technology
x In the olden days, the major cost of attending a regatta for yacht owners and crew was the accommodation and still is. Of course for cruising yachties, traditionally the crew stays on boat, during regatta week, because after all it is replete with dishwasher, washing machine, a good cellar and an oven in which you could cook a roast. For racing boat owners or dinghy owners, life was not so easy.

World Sailing Cup - Ahead a Dead Rat in a Shoe v3 or Spring Daffodils
While a host of major sailing events go from strength to strength, the Sailing World Cup has very major issues. Last night my Irish better half was sitting beside me on the sofa watching an Australian version of the popular TV Cooking Program My Kitchen Rules on a tablet with her headphone while I was watching Diehard II for the seventeenth time (it’s a boy thing) on TV. She suddenly spluttered and laughed, took off her headphones and motioned for me to mute Diehard. (Seriously!!)
