Come sail over the horizon...engineless, junk-rigged and happy...more
European Odyssey will make several stops along the way - including in London .. .
There's the European Odyssey, the first rally I can remember which started in the heart of northern Europe and ended in the Canaries, the welcome mat is out on Catalina Island for boats cruising south in California, the World ARC is in countdown mode (but there's still time to join), the Christmas Caribbean Rally is enticing families with kids to join them across the Atlantic, and, finally the British tall ship the Lord Nelson still has spare berths for the crossing of the Tasman Sea from Sydney to Auckland – just a short flight away!
Kathy and Bob Groves are happily cruising, but instead of a Bavaria, a Beneteau or some other well known brand, they have chosen to build an engineless junk-rigged schooner. Read what it's like...
Easy Go - junk-rigged schooner .. .
All over the world there are small attempts to use sailing boats for freight. This week we tell of a new one on the Hudson River, delivering goods to New York.
You never quite know who's berthed next to you, as a true grim mystery from the South Pacific shows; there's a story on the way AIS technology is getting more and more affordable; and if you're sailing in British waters you will need to diarise a depletion in weather forecasting quality next year.
If you liked this newsletter, do nothing, we will send you another ..
Naa, please don't send me another.
