    Thursday October 16th. Today is Sea Breezes day. The September issue has arrived in store and articles inside include the refloat of the Costa Concordia and her journey to Genoa where she will be broken up, the second part of the history of TSS Maori, a feature on the history of RMS Queen Mary and some fascinating photos (and article) about the troop transport President Coolidge and her capsize after hitting a mine in 1942. All great stuff!

    Sunday October 12th. Today we have new September Issues: Shipping Today and Yesterday features an article about a 'lucky Old Ship', the Baune which was built in 1958 and suffered a myriad of collisions, fires and strandings before being scrapped in 1977. The luckiest of 3 sister ships. Also in this issue, an artists view of Dutch Shipping Lines, and Port of Call of the month is Los Palmas! The new issue of Classic Boat gives us a close up look at the Truly Classic 51 yacht Alexa designed by Dutch naval architect Andre Hoek, and a look at the fabulous Riva motorboat Ribot III built in 1960 with two Cadillac-Crusader V8 engines and a maximum speed of 60mph.. A beautiful expanse of mahogany and chrome! The latest issue of Yachting World features the great J-Class revival, how to make your keel safe, and some wet weather gear testing. And finally Pilot magazine for those of you who like to sail amongst the clouds.
