How long does it take to get to know a boat? Longer than most people think. When I first sailed Blue Mistress, she had a lot of weather helm. I thought it might be something to do with the rudder. It became a feature of our sailing – slowed us a little but it didn’t stop us. Then I discovered it wasn’t necessarily the rudder. I learnt to trim the sails more carefully, and got used to selecting the ‘right’ foresail for the particular weather. That was a pretty obvious, you say. Perhaps, but, problems often work that way – they crop up and are set aside to be solved later. The bigger, more pressing problems draw our attention and the lesser ones are tolerated and fade into the background. As a result many of us live our lives at less than our full potential – mildly (or heavily) inhibited by a pot full of unfinished business.

So with the weather helm. I was sailing with the No 1 foresail. Straightfoward stuff. And I enjoyed the sense of a race. Burnett Yacht Design - Custom cruising yacht design and consultancy. Small Boat Journal. Bulletin 149 Cats4Sale. Marshall 22. Here is the perfect boat to expand your cruising grounds.

Marshall 22

The Marshall 22 is a rugged, sea-kindly boat with classic looks that will turn heads in any harbor. Her two foot draft will let you access anchorages and coves that are off limits to most cruising sailboats. The M-22 is roomy enough for a family of four and simple enough for a couple to enjoy a relaxing weekend away from home. An elegant daysailer, the M-22 is also a capable long distance cruiser. Many of her owners have sailed their boats from New England to Florida and even as far north as Greenland.

For those preferring greater sail area and more sail handling, the traditional look of the sloop rigged version of the M-22 has proven popular. Cruiser or daysailer, cat or sloop rigged, let us work with you to customize a boat that will satisfy your sailing needs. Marshall Marine.

'Ping' 'Ping' again By chance, when surfing the Internet, I came across a reference to a small, but powerful ocean cruising yacht by the name of ‘Ping’.

‘Ping’ 6.2 metre Ocean Pocket Cruiser

She was designed by naval architect, Eur Ing Alastair G L Hunter. I had heard of another of his yachts, the double-ended, single-chine ‘Shuffle’, of which there are three versions: the 7.3 metre, the 7.8 metre and the 8.2 metre – all of them made from steel. The smallest of his yachts is the ‘Phantom 14’, which he designed for coastal cruising and weekending.

Grand largue - Fabulite. LE " NE QUID NIMIS " Fabulite L'équipage "NE QUID NIMIS", un nom compliqué qui signifie en latin "juste ce qu'il faut".

grand largue - Fabulite

Voilier de grande croisière construit par le Chantier Naval de Soubise, sur plans du cabinet d'architecture ETARN sous la direction de Pierre Laval, le NE QUID NIMIS est confortable, rapide, sûr et marin, il a la taille idéale pour partir tranquille en toute sécurité, à un prix raisonnable, en ayant la certitude de toujour pouvoir effectuer les manoeuvres seul ou à deux au maximum, quel que soit le temps. Le NE QUID NIMIS est de conception assez classique dans l'ensemble, bien que quelques détails le singularisent : - sur l'eau : une coque en forme bien frégatée vers le maître bau pour réduire les poids dans les hauts, une étrave tulipée et des sections avant évasées donnent une plage avant confortable et sèche, ce qui est une sécurité.
