eBook '101 Dollar Saving Tips'...Welcome mat from Indonesia...theory of righting moments...solar sail to cruise space..Calling catalinas to Lake Macquarie...schooners on the coast of Madagascar...when to reef...and much more
Sailing Indonesia's 18,000 islands now easier .. .
For cruising sailors thinking of heading north from Australia the best news of the week is that Indonesia has confirmed yachts will be welcome for three months to three years, AND with a minimum of paperwork. The Indonesian archipelago is a sailing heaven of around 18,000 islands (yes, that's right - 18,000!) just waiting to be discovered, so Thailand will have some stiff competition if Indonesia lives up to its word.
It's a great time for planning next year's sailing-related activities – if you sail a Catalina Lake Macquarie is a great place to head in January for the Catalina Rendezvous, and read about the vintage sailing event on Italy's beautiful Lake Como next July - there's plenty of time to plan to be there...
Some great products featured this week – an innovative DryAfloat bag, a luxuriously illustrated coffee table book on yacht design, and an ebook that any sailor will want to read, with no less than 101 dollar-saving tips! Any of them would be good Christmas presents and they're all available online.
Lots of other stories as well – read how multihulls are taking the market by storm; a sweet tale of the cargo sailing ships that have continuously plied the coast of Madagascar for hundreds of years; an excellent piece on the theory of righting moments and, importantly, when to reef.
Much more too, so run your eyes down the headlines to choose your interest.
