Change at the Helm
I’ve written 150 Broad Reaching columns spanning three years and it has been an immense pleasure to share my experiences with you and to bring you Cruising Compass each week. But as in life and sailing, change always comes. And with that I leave the helm of Cruising Compass in the able hands of fellow cruiser Tatja Hopman. Broad Reaching with Andrew Cross will now be a monthly column on the back page of Blue Water Sailing magazine and you can follow my sailing adventures here.
Thank you, and enjoy this week’s edition.
I in turn am excited to embark on a new sailing related journey. I’m looking forward to connecting with the cruising community through a new avenue. Cruising has been an important part my life and provided many family adventures. As summer comes, my husband, two daughters and I will likely be visiting old favorites and discovering new coves and inlets in Maine.
Note from the Publisher:
Over the last three years, Andy has been the voice of Cruising Compass and driven its content and design. CC has gone from strength to strength and is a much better weekly e-journal than it was when he took the helm. We wish Andy well in his new endeavors.
We are excited to welcome Tatja aboard as CC’s new editor. Tatja went cruising four years ago with her husband Pablo and their two children aboard their Hallberg Rassy 37 Borealis. They sailed in the first Salty Dawg Rally and she has stayed involved with he SDR ever since. She knows the cruising scene and knows what cruisers like to read about because she is one.
Thanks to Andy and to all of our advertisers who make CC possible. And, thanks to all of you for being such loyal and enthusiastic readers.
