The fleet under surveillance

At 10:02am today, Actual Leader crossed the equator, which means that all three boats racing on the Brest Atlantiques are now sailing in the Northern Hemisphere, with Maxi Edmond de Rothschild more than a day ahead of its two rivals. For the six skippers, one of the priorities towards the end of the race is to preserve their trimarans which have been tested to varying degrees since the start in Brest on 5th November.

Yuletide Selection

I’m a bit of a gruff creature when it comes to the commercialisation of Christmas – but there’s one thing that I fervently believe: a book is a present that, if well chosen for the recipient, will give hours of pleasure and be a lasting reminder in itself of someone putting thought, not just money, into a Yuletide gift. So do consider adding one or more from this selection to your gift-buying list. Four have a maritime theme; there’s also a Georgian miscellany – and a look at the real ‘Dad’s Army’. Hopefully, there’s something for everyone in this somewhat eclectic selection.
