Recommended magazines

There is only little to none information on catboats in german magazines and european respectively. For german magazines rather the  "Yacht Classic" can be recommended. Testreports and articles about catboats can be found in previous editions from the years 1904-1981 of "Die Yacht"  in the "Yacht-archiv".
As in the USA and partly also in England some excellent clubs exist about education in traditional boatbuilding also various magazines on these topics can be recommended.
