Fremantle Bali Rally off and away,Lagoon gathering in Melbourne,more..
Pete Goss and Andy Warrender go adventuring again .. .
Down in Melbourne read how the Lagoons gathered for the inaugural Lagoon Escapade. What a time they had at Martha Cove. Generosity was the name of the game, with one solitary Beneteau being made very welcome.
Up on the Gold Coast Hope Island Marina has berths being sold at ever cheaper prices, and 23 have been sold in one week – if ever you wanted to own a marina berth at a reasonable cost, this is your chance.
What are they putting in Atlantic Ocean water to attract so many cruising sailors? Not only is the 2013 'Atlantic Rally for Cruisers' (ARC) already at capacity with an added departure announced, new organisers Sailing Rallies are running the 'Christmas Caribbean Rally' later in December, and Jimmy Cornell has this week announced not one but two new rallies, Atlantic Odyssey I and II, straddling the dates nicely. This doesn't even take into account Stokey Woodall's more ambitious Atlantic Circuit, scheduled for 2014.
What are they putting in the water? .. .
It's always sad when gorgeous sailing waters become plagued with security issues, so I hope the armed robberies and attacks on cruising sailors in Phuket will be short-lived. One citizen hero and the police have acted quickly in one incident reported this week.
Chalong Bay - normally a peaceful haven for sailing boats .. .
In the USA the Coast Guard are complimenting the crew of a recent rescue; over in the Philippines a boat crew has been killed by lightning – so we take the chance to remind sailors of how to deal with lightning on a boat; the boat of the week is the NEEL 60 trimaran, an extraordinary vessel which writer Des Ryan describes as a 'sleek alien'.
