Guam sailors cruise to the remote Maug Islands By Lacee A.C. Martinez, GuamPDN/Sail-World, , 10:02 AM Mon 20 May 2013
To most of us Guam is a remote island in the Marianas somewhere in the western Pacific Ocean, best known as a US military base. But Guam, naturally, is not remote to the leisure sailors who live there. It's Maug that is remote - so remote that few sailors had ever ventured there, until Jim, Wayne and Bill, Guam sailors, set off recently in a 38ft Galaxie and told their story to Pacific Daily News. ...[more]

It took him two years. From London to Istanbul he sailed, and when there was no wind, he rowed.

Sailing Tales: A yachting life in the Arctic By Nancy Knudsen/Sail-World Cruising, 6:45 AM Fri 8 Feb 2013
There are many of us who love the sailing cruising life but are tied to a desk most of the time. Some, however, can successfully combine both, even while bringing up a family.

Indonesia opens its heart to long range cruisers By Nancy Knudsen, , 11:28 AM Mon 29 Oct 2012
...and hopes they will open their pockets. About 500 yachts a year visit Indonesia. For a tropical country blessed with thousands of remote and interesting islands, that is very few of the 50,000 yachts that sail through Asia.
