Fastest ever solo Circ...lessons from a lost sailor...'genuine' fakes
Most cruising sailors want the same things – to leave the squared-off, man-made world behind for a while, to enjoy a sense of freedom in the natural world of the sea. But you can only achieve that without anxiety if you 'sail with confidence'. Jack Klang this week explains in a mere couple of paragraphs which cover a world of sailing wisdom.
Sad to report another cruising sailor lost overboard this week, wearing a life jacket but without a personal locator beacon, in a remote part of the Pacific. In a too typical scenario, his fiance, the only other person on board, was an inexperienced sailor and was lifted off by helicopter, the boat abandoned, now a navigation hazard. After a huge two-day effort by rescuers, the search has now been called off. What's the message for us all? Stay clipped on.
'Genuine' fake products can have their drawbacks. Read how one cruising sailor is in danger of having his whole boat confiscated because the fake cigars he bought were just too good!
A wide range of stories from the world's ocean's again this week. The yacht of the week is the just-about-to-be-launched Alpha 42 catamaran – very interesting boat pictured below, and the book of the week is Dag Pike's 'Cruising under Sail'.
