June issue of Sailing Today out now!

The June issue of Sailing Today, out now, offers plenty of escapism as well as practical advice, giving you a chance to plan ahead for when our cruising days resume.

Two weeks sailing in Croatia or around Ireland may sound exotic and even extravagant in the midst of lockdown, but maybe now is the perfect time to start plotting a holiday afloat.

The two mouth-watering stories in our June issue, giving practical advice about sailing the Dalmatian coast and the Irish Sea, offer much inspiration.

Now may also be a time when you can consider your boat’s kit. The June issue of Sailing Today is packed with useful advice on furling systems, on electronic MOB devices and also on the latest high-tech plotters. Each of these articles offers plenty to consider.

Hopefully it won’t be long before we can get back into boatyards again and with this in mind we also take a look at marine varnishes.

Distance learning has boomed during this period and our June issue has an in-depth look at what is out there for cruising sailors. The Virtual Regatta app is popular with racers, but cruisers can brush up on all manner of skills using sailing simulators. Meanwhile there is no lack of theory courses to do at home. The June issue explains what is available.

Practical advice continues in our article on windshifts. Adjusting sail and course to steer according to every windshift may sound like the preserve of racing folk, but it can vastly improve comfort on board and help you get into port quicker. Paralympian Helena Lucas has all we need to know.

This June issue of Sailing Today is the first that goes out in combination with our sister title, Yachts & Yachting. This will be the case for the duration of the Covid-19 crisis.

So we include a look at some of the biggest news from the racing world, including an exclusive interview with Freddie Carr from INEOS TEAM UK, the British bid to win the America’s Cup next March. Freddie, who as well as being a vastly experienced sailor is probably one of the fittest men in the country, reports on how recent developments have affected Cup preparations.

We have a revealing Q&A interview with Dave Atkinson, of the Island Sailing Club. Dave is Race Director for the Round the Island Race, which has been postponed until the autumn. He looks at what is in store and explains how this fabulous event – known as the cruiser’s race – happens each year.

There is plenty more in this issue of Sailing Today. If you see it on the shelf of your local newsagent or supermarket, it will be called Sailing Today with Yachts & Yachting. All the essential cruising content you trust and expect from the Sailing Today team each month will continue. We hope you enjoy a taste of the fascinating performance racing world as well for a few months, until we can all go down to the seas again…
