Magazine Description

In this issue

A special section on Safety includes a look at safety gear and various types of safety electronics available for the voyager: EPIRB, PLB, AIS, SART, sat phones, SPOT units, DeLorme InReach, etc. What are the pros and cons of these systems? Another safety story surveys the various types of long range medical assistance programs for voyagers. We'll examine organizations like Divers Alert Network and WorldClinic.com and see what types of help they offer. Cruising systems guru Nigel Calder takes his family on a voyage down the west coast of Ireland — the wrong way, from north to south against the prevailing wind, and during one the wettest, stormiest summers in years. Live aboard voyagers explain the best range of repair tapes to have on board for doing all the different types of jobs required to keep a voyaging boat going. A voyaging couple describe how voyagers are helping local people in the pacific islands of Vanuatu recover after Cyclone Pam ripped through and destroyed homes and businesses. A former Navy special warfare combat crewman describes nighttime, high speed navigation in a RIB in the Indian Ocean when the GPS goes out and he is thrown back onto using a paper chart to complete the mission and more.
