Cruising Masterclass a sellout...CO open air warning...much more...

Some fun pastimes that go with sailing require frequent proximity to the outboard motor  .. .

Everywhere in the world the pastime of sailing is undergoing a blossoming. Royal Melbourne Yacht Squadron is growing its marina capacity ready for a surge, and it's the same in Croatia, trying to attract some of the growing number of cruising sailors in the Med.

It's 'quiet little drink' time coming soon in Lord Howe Island again. An event where the destination date is the important one, not the departure or the speed. Just my kind of event!

Sydney's Middle Harbour Yacht Club is getting a head start on Spring with great sailing opportunities for kids.

Up in the Whitsundays they're getting ready for the Multihull Rendezvous.

Even in Oman, not renowned for its modern history of sailing, the kids are signing up in droves for lessons.

Do you have a problem with weather helm? Love the thrill of sailing with the toe rail in the water? John Jamieson is back with some sound advice on why neither should apply to your boat if you want to sail faster.

Many more articles and stories too, so browse the headlines to find what interests you.

Here's wishing you warm winter sailing!
