Adventure, danger, threats and an incredible amount of joy
The world of the cruising sailor is full of inspiration, adventure, danger, threats and an incredible amount of joy. You could say the same about the subjects covered in a week of cruising news, which also usually features informative articles on a wide variety of subjects - and this week there's some sensational offers now that the spring sailing has begun.
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 a family of four who sailed the Pacific, and learned much 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.
Is there no end to the extraordinary designs that superyacht designers come up with? See the latest; Henri Lloyd has a sale starting Friday this week in Crows Nest in Sydney, Coastguard New Zealand is pleading with boaties to check their boats ready for summer; and Quantum Australasia has a Summer Sale Giveaway.
The yacht feature is on the Hallberg Rassy 55 (pictured below, one of the 'European Yachts of the Year' in the luxury cruiser class.
