Audi Hamilton Island Race Week; Crosbie Lorimer Day 1 Images By Crosbie Lorimer, Hamilton Island , 10:33 PM Sunday 17 Aug 2014 - Sail-World AUS GMT
Some of the heavy air specialists must be wondering whether it's time to re-train for Audi Hamilton Island Race Week after Day 1 of racing in 2014 started much as it signed off in 2013, with very light airs for the entire Lindeman Island race. Not that such conditions in any way worried most of the crews who, despite a shortened course at Lindeman Island for many of them, returned to the dock ... [more]

Audi Hamilton Island Race Week began in a long-time expected fashion with a light (even perhaps ultra-light) south-easterly breeze for the Round Lindeman Island Race.

Cornell turns back from the North West Passage By Jimmy Cornell, , 2:15 PM Sunday 17 Aug 2014 - Sail-World Cruising Int GMT
Our stop at Beechey Island was tinged with sadness, not only because of the tragic events of all those years ago, but also by the decision to abandon our attempt to transit the Northwest Passage this summer. With the ice situation showing little improvement, even if a late transit may become possible, we could face the prospect of being unable to reach the Pacific before the seas started to ice up ...
