Buying a boat, cooking at sea, Early Warning Squall Detector
Happy New Year to all our Sail-World Cruising readers! This edition brings you the first of many news magazines to your inbox in 2014, keeping you right up to date with what's happening in the world of the cruising sailor. With stories of sailing adventures, inside advice on new products and how to increase your cruising skills, you'll also have all the news about what's happening not only in your local waters but around the world.
One of the most insightful videos about cruising and what it means to be afloat and away from the structured life of landlubbers comes this week from the hand of long term cruising sailor Drake Roberts. It's a real magnet to get out there - or remind you why you should stay out there.
What kind of sailing boat is going to right for you? John Martin
Two excellent pieces in this edition from regular writers, both of them long term cruising sailors. One from John Martin of the Island Cruising Association about wise purchasing of a cruising boat, the other from TV journalist Sheryl Shard with Ten Tips on cooking at sea.

While we take cruising in our own waters or cruising the world as though it had always been part of life, sailing a boat for leisure purposes, not cargo, has a very short history. That's why the New York Boat Show, on now, at 109 years old, is the oldest boat show in the world. Its location in the Javits Center, though, makes it look as modern as tomorrow, and if you are anywhere close it's a 'must see'.
Saba 50 sailing .. .
The yacht featured this week is the Saba 50 cat from French boat builder Fountaine Pajot, and I know you're just going to love the Early Warning Squall Detector, a new invention by Dr Stanley Paris, who is currently circumnavigating the world non-stop and solo at the age of 76. Go Stanley!
Much more too, so browse the headlines to find your interest, and, if you are lucky enough in the middle of winter...
