HI,

I''m going to the UK next month and will be staying with a friend who enjoys sailing. I want to get him a small gift. Can anyone recommend a good american sailing magazine?

Cheers,
Kelly

Reading material depends a bit on the kind of sailor your friend is. "Sailing" (based in WI or IL, I forget) is a great mag with good photography that your friend probably hasn''t seen. Articles are more in-depth than many of the glossy Dr''s-office varieties. Woodenboat (if he has one of those) will fascinate him if he doesn''t already subscribe. "Sailing World" is oriented more to racing. Bon voyage!

Check out Good Old Boat magazine (www.goodoldboat.com) Comes out 6 times a year. It''s geared towards those of us with boats 10 years and older. In the spirit of full disclosure, I write for them occasionally.

"Latitudes and Attitudes" gets my vote. It''s a little corny at times and they still need a proof reader( but most mags have gotten lax in that respect). And, of course, "Cruising World" which I''ve been getting for about 20 years( think they should give me an anniversary subscription???).

I enjoy Lats & Atts......the big magazines seem to be repetitive after reading for 12-18 months
