Australian Boating Current Issue

August issue follows hard on the heels of the Sydney International Boat Show, and was then held back a little to include Round 4 of the SAILGP in Cowes, UK.,so we could publish the very latest results before the final Round in Marseille France, next month. We also held it back for the final race day in the very popular Airlie Beach Race Week up in the Whitsundays.
Apart from this sail racing coverage, we also have a big line-up of the star exhibits from the Sydney Boat Show, including the first Australian display of the Beneteau Flyer 10, the debut of the American-based Aquila 36 sports and its sister, the Aquila 44 flybridge – two big power catamarans unlike anything made in Australia and destined to create considerable interest and possible sales.
The Sydney Show also carried the debut of the latest Riviera SUV 505, a truly elegant, stylish cruiser with an innovative covered back deck which is best described as "the back veranda". Sounds a bit strange, we know, but when you see this in real life it makes you wonder why we haven't developed such a good idea in these bigger sports cruisers a long time ago.
But if we thought that was different, the 45 Ocean Alexander "Divergence” a quasi centre console (for want of a better description), took everyone's breath away. With fold-down-and-out topsides, it provided a whole new way of looking at an entertainment area in a modern cruiser – and judging by the people queued up to see it at SIBS, we weren’t alone in thinking it was one of the more interesting exhibits.
The August issue is not all glitz and glamour – it has a terrific family report on the Sydney based Bradburn family taking their Cygnet 20 down the Hawkesbury River, sailing and rowing the 60 nautical miles involved, and reminding everyone about the joys, advantages and challenges in a family living on board a very nicely designed 20 footer.
There is a lot of sailing and sail racing in this issue, but Di Pearson's coverage of the Airlie Beach Race Week is very detailed and a ‘must read’ supplement for the sailors involved, especially as it features Andrea Francolini’s wonderful photography.
Have to mention the racing coverage from England for the SAILGP - if only because Tom Slingsby’s Aussie crew won three out of three races on the final day, and the video coverage of this event in AB is amazing.
All this and much more in this 122 page issue !
