Australian Paul Larsen is leading the SailRocket World Speed record chase again.

We are continuing to post stories on Sealink Magnetic Island Race Week stories.

Thanks to everyone who has written complimentary notes about our coverage of the Queensland winter regatta.

We started with Brisbane to Keppel, then followed up with Airlie Beach, Hamilton and Magnetic Island.

It was an epic journey and we only came south of the border again today, bloody cold too!!

We have lots more images and news yet to publish...

The 2012 Pittwater Coffs regatta is shaping as the best in many years. Good to see, definitely worth a look this year.

America's Cup, Volvo Ocean Race, Olympics, Rolex Sydney to Hobart- our single event newsletters have been enormously successful and we will be running them all this year. Our unique newsletter audience for each of those events is closing on 140,000 readers world-wide. This will be a giant year for Sail-World and we are looking forward to you all coming for the ride.

Now we close with our plug for the Heaven Can Wait Regatta on Lake Macquarie.. Its on the October 1-2nd- the One Lap Dash and the 24 Hour Race. Its a MUST Do.

Don't just talk about it - come along.
