September issue of Sailing Today with Yachts & Yachting is out now

The September issue of Sailing Today with Yachts & Yachting is out now and is packed with articles for cruising sailors.

Top coach Mark Rushall writes on sailing downwind and how to ‘change gear’, when simply wanting to tie up in time for tea, or perhaps when you want to outrun a nasty looking cloud.

 

We look at the latest winches and windlasses on the market, breaking down the options for big boats and others.

 

The Beneteau Oceanis Yacht 54

Our boat test this month is the Beneteau Oceanis Yacht 54, an interesting launch from the French builders coming with a host of modern tech inside and out.

We have four pages on the latest new kit, as ever, this month including an interesting bio-Dyneema from Marlow Ropes. The diagram above shows how it comes about.

Our kit pages include our monthly ‘shortlist’, which in our September issue takes a close look at what boat binoculars might be best for you and your sailing.

We also have a fascinating masterclass in how to handle a yacht of 50ft or longer. Chris Warwick explains why more sailors are opting for the ‘think big’ approach.

We have an inspiring interview with Poole sailor Pip Hare, who has now confirmed her Vendée Globe entry after securing a title sponsorship with software giant Medallia.

We also meet Eilidh McIntyre, who stepped into big shoes in the 470 with Hannah Mills, but is now on her way to the Olympics with the goal of emulating her father’s gold in Seoul!

 

We have a big feature on the most exciting new launches of the past year. Among them has been this double-handed dinghy from Melges. Your kind of thing?

There is lots more to enjoy in our September issue, on sale now at your local newsagents and here online: https://www.sailingtoday.co.uk/our-sailing-magazines/
