Thursday August 28th. 6 new issues on the shelves this morning, so September must be on its way. In today is...Boating New Zealand with a fabulous article about the Ngataki, and the South Sea Vagabonds book (amongst other things!) A great article, and worth buying just for that! Also today NZ Fishing News and Trade-a-Boat and
3 International magazines including Marlin (Travel Issue), Boat International for armchair dreaming, and the air-freight edition of Yachting World, featuring J-class revival, keel safety, and adventure cruising to the Auckland islands with Wanderer III.
Wednesday August 27th sees the long awaited return of Good Old Boat. This popular American magazine which claims to be The sailing magazine for the rest of us certainly lives up to that. There are practical articles on lightning protection, creating a leak-proof deck gland, making a crane for tight spots but also some lovely stories from solo sailing to memories of teaching grandchildren to sail and much more.
Monday August 25th and a couple more new magazine issues arrived. The August issue of Cruising World goes island hopping on the Great Lakes, explores the Southern Ocean leg of the Clipper Round the World Race and includes a Charter Resources Guide for 2014. The September/October issue of Professional Skipper has the usual updates of new vessels being built and/or delivered; one barge for the Kingdom of Tonga one fishing vessel for a Kaikoura couple. There is also a reprinted article from 1917 written by the late W.G. Dunstan who spent 18 months on Sunday (N=now Raoul) island with his mum, dad and family and of course he mentions the oranges which were made famous by Johnny Wray in his book "South Sea Vagabonds".
