Wineglass Bay: Hobart 2013 Rendezvous Cruise - idyllic cruising in the summer .. .
It's good to see that members of the Cruising Yacht Club of Australia, best known outside Sydney circles for its sometimes grueling Sydney to Hobart Yacht Race, are starting to validate the name of their club by indulging in some serious cruising.
Just announced is the Third Rendezvous Cruise to Hobart, not this summer, but next. Time to start planning, cruisers. It's idyllic sailing in Tasmania in the summer, and the company will be excellent (Register early - the numbers will be limited).
In sadder news, read how in New Zealand they are still battling the tragic oil spill in the Bay of Plenty, with thousands of the wildlife already dead, and there's a heads-up for Australia in the damning US Department of Energy just released report into E15.

Paul and Rachel Chandler, retrieved pirate hostages, are in the news again as they claim that the British Police, not the Foreign Office should have been called when they were kidnapped.
The bad news of the week for cruising sailors is the knowledge that there are still hard objects floating in the ocean that can sink your boat. Read of the collision with a 'metal object' by a mini Transat boat in the Atlantic. What could it be if not a container? We thought they were perforated to sink these days.
