This week is no different. There's the tearful survivor who tells what it was like to lose his yacht, the story on the serious sailors heading for the Northwest Passage, an article about a new low-emission dinghy and the restoration of a hundred-year-old yacht. Then there's the perfect sunglasses for sailors - they just can't sink! Among all the stories there's sure to be some that you can't go past.
Down in Melbourne they are delighted with the outcome of the Melbourne Boat Show and up in the Whitsundays they're delighted with the roll-up for the Multihull rendezvous.
There's the tale of the young man who has almost completed a circumnavigation of Britain when he lost his rudder, and the sombre news of an terror attack in Panama on cruising sailors. You might get a bit of a laugh at the training sailing boat that took a wrong turn and provided lots of photo opportunities while it sat on a rock high and dry, or an even bigger laugh at the two motor boats that couldn't get out of each others' way.
Last sight of the 60m yacht Yogi, which sank in Greek waters in February .. .
Or you might rather read the second part of John Curnow's interview with an Oceanis Beneteau 45 owner, or how the 'perfect storm' of weak skill and strong desire sank a yacht in the Mediterranean, or you might even like to learn either how to build your own boat from some of the best teachers in the world or what to do to become superyacht crew.
