Sailing with pigs..circumnavigating the North Pole..HMS Bounty Award
Piracy, successful foiling has driven down piracy in Somali waters
In rally news the Stokey Woodall Atlantic Circuit is having early popularity, up in St Petersburg in Russia they're celebrating classic boats, and Beneteau's own 'Classic', the Oceanis 38, is taking on a new look!
Over in Turkmenistan, they are opening their first yacht club. Yes I knew that Turkmenistan was on the Caspian Sea, but somehow I never imaged there would be a yachting scene vibrant enough to have a yacht club.
The news is not all good, of course. One grieving Dad won't accept his daughter, missing now for over a month from the schooner Nina, thought sunk in the Tasman Sea, is lost. He is beginning to start his own search.
Enough time has passed since the sinking of the HMS Bounty for the brave souls who rescued 14 crew during of Hurricane Sandy to receive their due honours and accolades.
As summer approaches, a new raft of sailors set out to sail the North West Passage. This week we feature a Polish boat which will circle the North Pole – and incidentally the North West Passage as well.
Not a lot about maintenance or practical subjects this week – full summer is a time for sailing, not maintaining!
Lots of other news too, so scroll down the headlines to find your own interest.
