Currently we do not produce a newsletter, its role is being usurped by the blog, but our old newsletters have lots of good material that you will enjoy reading. In them you will find lots of trip reports, articles on members’ boats, electric motor installations, using dyneema for rigging, safety, and much more. You will even find the occasional recipe! For example, here’s a great one from the December 2001 Newsletter.
