We have teamed up with Zhik to offer a great competition prize worth £300, a set of their popular Kiama jacket and trousers. Enter here.
We look at the latest batteries on the market, breaking down the options for coastal and blue water sailors. We also review watermakers. What does a modern cruising boat really need?
Our boat tests this month are the Dufour 530, which offers a clever blend of comfort and power; and the Tofinou 9.7, an appealing take on the modern classic and a nifty race boat.
Elsewhere our October issue has a fascinating account by reader Peter Lukursky of how he and his girlfriend went from port to port during lockdown, unable to tie up for 70 days.
Our expert coach Mark Rushall writes on how to do without his services! The idea of ‘self-coaching’, how to refine your sailing skills without the luxury of a coach or instructor.
We talk to several pro sailors including Ben Ainslie and Mark Goodison, who speak candidly about their respective America’s Cup campaigns, Ben with INEOS TEAM UK and Mark with American Magic.
Meanwhile in the latest of our interviews with the members of TeamGB, Hannah Mills talks about sustainability, motivation and her Olympic campaign in the 470 class . If Hannah wins in Tokyo next year, she will become the most successful female Olympic sailor ever.
We also carry a big feature on sailing’s female trailblazers including practical advice for clubs on how they can boost female participation.
