A brand new look

When the first issue of Yachting Monthly was published in 1906, the pages were filled with navigation notes, cruising stories, reviews of new yachts and practical tips on navigation.

Today, YM has a new look, but the heart of the content still remains true to its original ethos, which has always helped it maintain its position as Britain’s most popular cruising magazine.

Over the years, successive editors have naturally put their own stamp on YM.

Maurice Griffiths, who was editor from 1927-67, focused on hands-on maintenance and seamanship. During the late 1960s, Des Sleightholme introduced practical skills, and tested everything from jury rigs to sails.

YM’s latest editor, Theo Stocker intends to keep practical sailing at the heart of the magazine, while giving it an update to keep giving the modern yacht cruiser the information and inspiration they want. ‘I hope the new-look magazine captures the joy of getting afloat and setting sail, while retaining the seamanlike practicality that has defined this magazine for so many years, and I look forward to hearing readers’ responses.’
