The fantastic, full-colour Wayfarer News is published twice a year and is free to all UKWA members. The magazine is filled with news, articles on racing and cruising events and details of future Wayfarer events. There is a very useful small ads section for boats and equipment for sale and wanted, as well as relevant commercial advertising – see sidebar.

The editor welcomes your reports on racing, cruising, training or family sailing events. Letters and technical articles are also much appreciated. High resolution colour photographs are particularly welcome (see also comments, below). Please contact the editor, Merrin Froggett, by e-mail: – who will advise on the copy deadline for the next, Winter 2023  issue.

Additional copies of Wayfarer News may be ordered for £5 each, including UK postage, from the online shop or the UKWA Secretary, while stocks last.

Editors’ guidelines to contributors:

“To race organisers: Please can all reports include the anecdotes, the scandal, the gossip and not just ‘Fred rounded mark 1 first!’”

“A few technical articles and viewpoints appreciated…”

“And of course, lots of photos of boats and especially people…”

“Cruisers: Please take shots of other cruisers, not just the beach scenes…”
