Sail-World World Cruising News Magazine    

The World Cruising Club, has published its itinerary for its 2008 World Rally, with the official entry list being open from late May. We have full details in our story below.

Sir Francis Chichester’s yacht Gypsy Moth IV, refurbished and part way through another circumnavigation, has hit a reef in Tahiti. Expects are assembling now to recover the situation. Read the latest reports here.

This week there are other incidents making news on the high seas. Two Israeli Sailors have just been released by Egyptian Authorities, after being held for two days for trying to join a rally!

A replica of the original Kontiki raft is set to sail the journey again, with the crew being no less than the original Thor Heyerdahl’s grandson!

Whales are a growing problem in the world’s oceans...we have a report and the there’s an update on the greatest sailboard rider of them all, Raphaela le Gouvello.

Have trouble rafting up so that everyone is happy, including you? Read the advice from a long time rafter! - and read about Skype, a boon for sailors everywhere.

We are very keen to assist the Cruising Division of Clubs around the world in publicising their events and activities and wherever possible publish their stories and news. These days on-line content is much more valuable than print content, which disappears each month.

Ask your Club newsletter editors and authors to contact Sail-World to both provide and receive content. We are happy for your Club print or e-magazine to use our content, with specific permsiions of course.

There’s more, much more, so read on and…

Sail safe,
