After over eight years at the helm Nancy Knudsen will be no longer editing the world-wide e-magazine, which goes to 53,000 subscribers weekly, both in the northern and southern hemispheres.

'I have treasured the many connections I have made in the sailing world,' she said today, 'loved the stories that people brought me, and enjoyed the communication with many readers who expressed their views, both positive and negative, about the articles they read.

'The cruising sailor's skills, those of good seamanship and survival skills, the ability to take off onto the remote waters of the earth knowing that it is only by your own careful hand you will make it to your destination, go largely unrecognised by everyone except others who have had the same experiences.

That is why the cruising sailing world is such a close-knit and collaborative – not competitive – one.

'It's time to seek out unknown new horizons in different seas, but I will never forget the wonderful people I met and the colleagues I had the pleasure to work with. Thank you to you all.'

Publisher Rob Kothe said, 'We are all turning a page today. Nancy has made an immense contribution to Sail-World Cruising and we can't thank her enough.

Over the next week our two cruising sites are about to expand into six geolocated sites, something that would not have been possible without her guidance.

'The Sail-World team wish Nancy and her husband Ted, all the best and above all kind winds.'
