Our "Yachting Monthly" collection
Yachting Monthly Magazine was first published in February 1898 and continued with variations in its title: The Yachting Monthly Magazine became The Yachting and boating monthly in 1906, then The yachting monthly and marine motor magazine in 1910, and The Yachting monthly and magazine of the R.N.V.R. at the end of the First World War. There were many good articles on racing and cruising, and a quite remarkable amount of content on yacht design and rating rules. Titles changed back to Yachting and boating monthly in the 1930s, and after the second World War varied slightly, using Yachting Monthly Sail and Power in the 1960s.
Still in print (2021), it is at the heart of the British yachting market and is for people who actively sail their boats – whether cruising across the channel, around the coast or further afield in blue waters. It provides an entertaining mix of vital information for cruising yachtsmen with all levels of experience, which maximises their enjoyment, increases their skills and gives them the confidence to broaden their horizons.
