Fast pace of sailing technology, two NZ yacht builders honoured...more
Nice to report how two New Zealand yacht builders are finalists in international awards, whereas over the ditch in New South Wales some marine rescue volunteers are having trouble with vandals and thieves, some of whom have been brought to justice.
Auckland saw a party atmosphere as the first ever Tall Ships Festival arrived from across the Tasman. This week's yachting feature is on the Seawind 1000XL2, making its mark on the cruising catamaran scene, and best of all, affordable!
There is some wise advice this week about making sure your VHF equipment is 'hooked up right', San Francisco cruising sailor, circumnavigator and author Larry Jacobson offers his advice on how to anchor without 'uttering a word', and 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.
Pumpkin boat and its skipper .. .
Finally there's a moment of sadness as we remember the HMS Bounty's sinking just a year ago.
That's just the beginning, so browse the stories to find your interest!
