Cruising Helmsman visits the Wooden Boat Festival in May issue out now

May Cruising Helmsman visits the deep south, going to Hobart and the land of the long white cloud.

Three stories give the reader plenty of ideas for destinations in New Zealand this month. One couple travel halfway around the world to find that NZ reminds them of home. Another couple embrace the adventure and take a trip south of the notorious South Island and find a fascinating place. The third couple show you how easy it is to charter a yacht and cruise the fabulous Bay of Islands.

We also visit the My State Australian Wooden Boat Festival in Tasmania – a wood lover's delight. Staying in Tasmania one cruiser dips south of the state to take a peek at a fascinating pile of rock in the middle of nowhere but easy to get to.

For the practical-minded we give pages and pages of useful boat 'hacks' to make living aboard that much nicer and easier.

Speaking of easy to get to, read all about how easy it is to visit and stay at Mooloolaba Marina.

To top it off there is one final but just as important article on how to check the weather forecast for yourself – forewarned is forearmed.

Plus the usual tips, recipes and latest gear and news.
