Adventure, dangers, threats and an incredible amount of joy
This week's most inspiring story is of the extravagant dreams of a young Indian sailor who wants to circumnavigate in the smallest boat ever. The saddest story comes from a sailor who found no birds when he recently sailed between Australia and Japan.

The threat this week comes from research which suggests that our valued AIS systems on our boats might be seriously vulnerable to hacking – and there's oceans of joy in the cruising tale from an Alaskan family who sailed the Pacific, and learned on the way.
John Martin of the Island Cruising Association give us his best advice on how to stay securely anchored when the wind is high and the seas turbulent.
It's when the chips are down you'll know if your anchoring skills will save you .. .
Is there no end to the extraordinary designs that superyacht designers come up with? See the latest; West Marine have announced a prize for the 'Green Product of the Year'; and there are some cruising classes you might want to know about if you are anywhere within reach of Maryland.
Read on, enjoy, and, for the hardy souls who are still out there or for those near the equator somewhere...
