The January edition of Yachts & Yachting magazine is out now. Fittingly, it includes two features I’ve written: one on the Barcelona World Race, which I will be working on in 2015, and one on taking my little family on our first sailing holiday together.
This issue marks my last as Deputy Editor, as an all-new team take over the reins of the title at Chelsea Magazines. Hopefully going to amazing events – and spending more time on the water – will both be a feature of my 2015. I’m particularly looking forward to the Barcelona World Race start – I worked on the race in 2010, and the Vendée Globe in 2008, and frankly I can think of few concepts as terrifyingly awesome as sailing around the Southern Oceans short-handed.
Suffice to say that after 12 years and around 240 issues of Yachts & Yachting magazine I’m looking forward to stepping away from the production cycle – and of course welcome any exciting ideas, projects or commissions for the New Year!
