Fast pace of sailing technology changing the world as we know it
This week's yachting feature is on the Aventura 43 – light, fast, stable, roomy, and best of all, inexpensive! The quirkiest tale of the week is of the British artist who sailed a pumpkin across the Solent – then, as it was still floating, sailed it back again. A moment of sadness as we remember the HMS Bounty's sinking just a year ago, and a note for your diary – June 21/22 for next year's Summer Sailstice.
Aventura on its first sail .. .
Ten Americans have been honoured with their induction into the National Sailing Hall of Fame, and it's good to know that these honours were not only for winning races, but for significant contribution to the development of sailing over a long period.
BoatUS has some wise advice this week about making sure your VHF equipment is 'hooked up right' and San Francisco cruising sailor, circumnavigator and author offers his advice on how to anchor without 'uttering a word'.
That's just the beginning, so browse the stories to find your interest!
