Regatta T-ShirtThis issue’s Photo of the Week comes from Roger - here’s what he wrote:

Hello John:

I've been cleaning dresser drawers for space and came across this 1979 LYRA t-shirt. This was my first LYRA Regatta. I remember the Freeman Cup Race was from Rochester NY to Kingston. I sailed with Timmy Pete on his CC29.

I thought it might be fun to see who out there has the oldest regatta t-shirt?

Pause for a moment and ponder this question. How much is your life and your safety at sea worth? Most people would say priceless and impossible to put a value on. And yet many people seem to misunderstand the worth and principle role of a marine surveyor, whose very job it is to ensure your safety at sea by surveying, inspecting and reporting on your expensive, potential new purchase. Instructing a marine surveyor to work on your behalf should never be seen as a distress purchase where price is the all-important factor, rather it is an essential requirement.

Excess 12 and 15By Kieran Flatt

Catamarans have many advantages for cruising: more space, more speed, no heeling and a more comfortable motion. However, many experienced sailors find them less rewarding and engaging to sail than a monohull. That isn’t an inherent problem with multihulls, though.
