Here's wishing you a peaceful and happy festive season
Our circulation for this news magazine that goes directly to your inbox is 55,000 and individual stories on the site are picked up by a vastly wider audience as they permeate the digital world via Google.
You can even upload your story and pictures (we love pictures) via our Contributors System at the top right corner of the www.sail-world.com site. But remember, this site and news magazine are not for competitive events – cruising sailors just love being on the water and don't care who gets there first.
Once again this week a vast range of new sailing stories for the cruising sailor – telling tales, giving great advice, bringing the cruising news from the world directly to you.
Of particular note are some of the safety articles, disguised as stories – Lee Mylchreest tells of an investigation as to why a collision occurred between a Swiss yacht and a large ship; there's some variation (and humour) world-wide about what to do next if you accidentally let off your EPIRB; and Sheryl Shard shares her top ideas about what's really important (and not much is) when you are cruising.
OMG I've just set off the EPIRB .. .
Don't miss the video of the glacier almost falling on a boat; on the subject of falling, we discuss what to do if someone falls from your dinghy; and UK Sailmakers have some nifty advice about improving your halyard tension.
Glacier coming .. .
Wherever you are, freezing in the higher latitudes or blissfully sailing in the tropics, here's wishing you a peaceful happy festive season however you choose to celebrate.
If you liked this newsletter, do nothing, we will send you another ..
Naa, please don't send me another.
