Classic Sailor Magazine Issue 10 – July 2016

Our July issue – trailer sailing

We’re looking at the trailer sailer this month, with the start of a four part guide into owning and sailing one. With a cabin and towed behind a family car are they the best way to get away to a different bit of coast each season? Certainly the upkeep is going to be easier, and mooring costs too.

We have a bit of a workboat feel this month – with pilot cutters in the Bristol Channel (joined for the first time by one or two of newer build!), we have the preview of the gargantuan Brest festival (July 13 to 19) and a lovely article from Robert Simper about the Norfolk Beach boats. There’s news of the new Swallows and Amazons film – Captain Flint, a Russian spy!? Sink us now! But actually now that we’ve seen it we think it’s pretty damn good and we’ll have more on that before the film comes out in August.

The Amazons!
