Summer is in full swing and while the urge to take advantage of the nice weather and get out sailing grows we remind you to preplan and check first.
To help you do that the December issue of Cruising Helmsman includes an article discussing the ten essential safety items every boat should have as a simple quick reminder of the basics to staying safe.

Last month we took you to South America and this month we finish off that excellent continent with a long trip down south from Argentina to Uruguay. We also visit the Northern Territory and one of the least visited destinations the Pacific's Tuamotus.

Plus we go from small boat sailing to big boat testing of the Moody 54 deck saloon.
