Favorite Sailing Magazines?

What are your favorite sailing magazines? I like eye candy, especially for the winter - and information of course. I'll be studying all the basic sailing books and brushing up on knot tying and general maintenance, but would also like to have some less techincal info too - and start fantasizing about a bigger boat for blue water cruising.

Aside from the eye candy, my interests are cruising, liveaboard, etc. I've seen "Blue Water" and "Yachting" - what else do you people recommend/enjoy?

Thanks,
Jack

BentSailor will become famous soon enough
Latitudes & Attitudes makes my list as does the Cruising Helmsman. The latter is somewhat focused on Australia/Australians but L&A is also an entertaining and informative read when I get it (haven't subscribed and it's hit & miss whether our news-agencies have it around here).

I've read a few issues of Sail which I found OK, but I wouldn't know if it is consistently that good or whether I happened to pick a good issue -shrug-

Eye Candy? Yachting World. Cool tech info? Seahorse and Professional Yacht Builder. For fun? Good Old Boat. Freebies and sentimental value? Latitude 38 and 48 North. Occasionally Wooden Boat and Sailing.

Hands-down: This Old Boat. Classic plastic is eye candy to me.
