In Yachting World June 2022 issue we get out on the water in two new yachts, testing the new Solaris 40 and getting the first sail on the new Beneteau First 27. And we take a look at the very latest crop of cruising yachts coming to you in 2022.
We bring you Tor Johnson’s story of a 5,000 mile crossing from Portugal to Panama and then bring you everything you need to know about transiting the Panama Canal – a bucket list experience for many sailors.
