The November issue of Sailing Today with Yachts & Yachting is out now and is packed with articles for cruising sailors.
We reveal the shortlist for the annual British Yachting Awards. We have nominations for 12 categories including Cruising Yacht of the Year, Clothing Innovation of the Year and Outstanding Achievement of the Year. The hard job is now yours! You can vote and choose the winner via our easy voting page. Visit britishyachtingawards.com
Our big boat test this month is the Content 55CS, a stylish yacht that combines speed and seaworthiness. Editor Sam Jefferson opens his review by asking what the basic elements of the perfect bluewater cruiser might be. You’ll have to read his review to find out if the Contest offers all of them, but we can tell you Sam was far from disappointed.
Elsewhere our November issue features one of the great sailing adventurers of our times. Bob Shepton recalls his most ambitious voyages in the high latitudes.
In the third of his four-part series celebrating coastal ports and places around Britain and Ireland, Jonathan Winter decides to head down the picturesque east coast of Ireland to Dublin, across to storm-damaged Holyhead, and on to Milford Haven by night.
And as ever we review the latest sailing kit on the market and look at the big sailing news stories you need to know about.
For those who follow the exciting events in pro sailing at the moment, our cover feature is an exclusive chat with Alex Thomson ahead of his fifth Vendée Globe, an achievement in itself, but one that will be forgotten if he wins the race for the first time after approximately 74 days at sea early next year. Alex was in expansive form as he chatted with us amid last-minute training.
Elsewhere in our November issue, we talk to Giles Scott, also aiming to make British sailing history in 2021. Giles is hoping to win the America’s Cup as part of INEOS Team UK and then the last ever Olympic Finn title. Just how is he fitting it all in? Giles was honest about the challenges that lie ahead.
There is lots more to enjoy in our November issue, on sale now at your local newsagents and here online.
