Cruising is a lifestyle of destination and discovery and the September issue of Cruising Helmsman takes you into areas that are only now just being discovered, yet easy to get to.
The old communist dictatorships of Europe are realising the benefits of opening up the ports and harbours to cruising tourists. One writer takes her Swan 46 into the empty but beautiful waters of the north Adriatic to visit Albania and Montenegro.
Another traveller takes us on a joyous and hilarious celebration of whisky via the Malts Cruise of the west coast of Scotland.
Celebrated sailing author Tom Cunliffe describes his trip in an eighty year old square metre classic to attend the recent D-Day anniversary celebrations.
Another place that at first glance would appear to be a long way away, (or even doesn't exist!) is the land of Lilliput from Gulliver's Travels. The amazing thing is this place is in Australia and we take you there.
On the practical side we take a look at rope versus steel rigging and the different kinds of mainsail furling systems available. To top it off we top off a boat's deck with cork.
We also test the Oceanis 38, look at part two of the rebirth of Redwing and all the other regulars to keep you informed and intrigued.
