Greece for Food Lovers

  #
By Bernadette Bernon

If you like awesome sailing, extraordinary food, and great drama, this voyage has it all. Like Odysseus of Greek mythology, we'll sail from one legendary island in the Cyclades, and one adventure, to another, visiting the exquisite Mykonos, Tinos, Santorini, Naxos, Ios, and more. We'll wander through spectacular white-washed villages; take walks through picturesque groves of two-century-old olive trees; sail past the dramatic Temple of Poseidon; and explore some of the most important historical sites in the world—Delos, the Sanctuary of Apollo, Point Sounian, and open-air amphitheaters that have hosted Greek dramas for a thousand years.

  #
The America’s Cup again made it to Court on Thursday (NZT). This time one the question of when the Match should be sailed. The arguments have been gone over many times by the PR and legal teams for both sides. However the tough question is what will happen next?

Justice Herman Cahn seems to be sticking closely to the Mercury Bay decision – in that the role of the Court is to interpret the Deed of Gift against the actions of the parties – and confirming or denying compliance.

Strewth 'rolls home': Rolex China Sea Race 2008

  #
A very wet and weary Strewth crew appeared out of the murk at Causeway Bay, Hong Kong, at 1500hrs today, accompanied by the faithful guard ship Cloud, the RHKYC’s Kellett VI, and RIB M69.

It was easy to tell which of the two yachts motoring up the harbour was Strewth – the one with the pronounced roll. Just 36 hours earlier she had lost her keel approx 170 nm south east of Hong Kong, en route to Subic Bay in the Rolex China Sea Race 2008.
