If you are considering visiting far-flung places with your pet on board, this report by Katie Monahan will give some insight into the rules and procedures in the Pacific Islands.

While extensively cruising with her dog Logan, Katie discovered that pet protocols were not as problematic as it appeared at the start, however, some countries were easier to get into than others and costs in some cases were substantial. Katie has put together a very useful website which includes all the necessary forms and hoops to jump through—as well as some tips and tricks for new boat dog owners.

Following on from last month's article on why transporting your yacht may be the right solution for you, this month we give a step-by-step guide on preparing your yacht for transport by carrier vessel. Proper preparation is crucial to ensure the safety and integrity of your prized possession.

Talking with other cruisers sailing in the same area as you, or undertaking the same passage, has become so much easier with the rise in cruiser Facebook groups. Usefully, the OCC maintains several Facebook groups, some of which are open to non-members. All are welcome to join the following:
