Sydney tall ships and Auckland On Water Boat Show...and more
Do you have a sailing yarn to tell - or some good advice that could benefit others? .. .
Whether you're a day sailor, a weekend cruiser or a long-range cruising sailor, sharing knowledge is the way that non-competitive sailors help each other to achieve dreams - and Sail-World Cruising is here to help you share.
This week's edition seems to be encouraging you to sail away from your daily life, with lots of invitations: to join a rally, sail in an exotic location or join a tall ship for a taste of sailing as it used to be.
The World ARC Rally is in countdown mode for the Caribbean departure, but this rally also departs Australia in September 2014, so there's still time to get a boat ready and join, and the British tall ship the Lord Nelson still has spare berths for the crossing of the Tasman Sea from Sydney to Auckland, but you'll have to hurry - it's leaving soon!
Ocean Cruising Club members Kathy and Bob Groves are happily cruising, but instead of a Bavaria, a Beneteau or some other well known brand, they have chosen to build an engineless junk-rigged schooner. Read what it's like...
Easy Go - junk-rigged schooner .. .
Kiwis are trying hard to bring in compulsory life jackets for kids in boats less than six metres. Yes, says Sail-World Cruising, as our team here see so many tragedies through non-wearing of life jackets that only the statistic is news any more. While still over in New Zealand, read on for a great coverage of the Auckland On Water Boat Show by Richard Gladwell.
In other stories, you never quite know who's berthed next to you, as a true grim mystery from the South Pacific shows; there's an article on the way AIS technology is getting more and more affordable; and do read about the 16 tall ships which are still gracing the shores of Sydney Harbour.
Tall ships are still gracing the shores of Sydney Harbour - and there's the chance to sail away in one! .. .
