IMHO yahcting has far too much power boat stuff. sail is cheap (10 bucks for a year), but good old boat is the best. you can get a free sample issue here.

Good Old Boat - Free Sample Issue

I enjoy Good Old Boat, SAIL and Sailing. If I had to choose one for what you're looking for I would recommend GOB - without a doubt.

Note that SAIL has a full featured and well designed website: SAIL Magazine

I enjoy Good Old Boat, but also find a lot of useful tips in SAIL. And for those of us locked in ice half the year, nothing quite beats the large, full spread photos in Sailing Magazine.

GOB is more for the do-it-yourself'er, where as SAIL appeals to the techie in me. Blue Water Sailing is ok, but is mostly stories of distant cruising lands. Practical Sailor is invaluable, but only if you are planning on spending more money

I finally gave up on Cruising World and Sailing World (although they still keep coming - kind of like your race crew when there is free beer). Way too much advertisement and promotional articles for my liking.

I agree with above - depends on what may be your style, and how many magazines you want to buy.

without a doubt, Good Old Boat but I still like Cruising World just for Cap'n Fatty Goodlander.

IMHO, #1. (best all around) Good Old Boat. #2. (tie) Sail and Lats and Atts. L&As is very entertaining and I love Bob, captain Woody,Tia and Buba. Sail is really more high tech, has some nice articles, but a little too much big money and big ocean racing for me. #3. Sailing. I like the editor and the various contributors. A fine mag with great photos. #4. Practical Sailor. Hard to read because it is by nature a research and testing publication, not meant to be entertainment.

I'm going with Good Old Boat. But, it's really more of a sailboat magazine than a sailing magazine.

The name Good Old Boat has always left me with the feeling that it's about old boats and my perception is that is largely wooden boats? We don't get it here and the sample issue is also not available to us so I have no way of evaluating the content.

It sounds like a good magazine, will someone give a broad-brush-strokes idea of the content please.

Good Old Boat will be renewed until the day I sail off into the Sunset. I like Sail too, and it's currently going for $12 a year. Not bad. Good magazine.
