The printed version will be distributed progressively to Coochiemudlo Island and mainland outlets Friday 1st October.

For the perfect weekend vibe, grab a coffee or a cuppa tea (or later on a beer, or rum for island pirates). Our October issue is our best yet!

Enjoy news, views and stories from our very own writers: Olivia Coleman writes of her adventures as a newbie boatie, and Skipper Dave Buchanan is back with another Salty Tale of adventure under the sea from his time as a commercial/salvage diver/pirate; Chris Patty has tips on managing loneliness; Diane Gilham is back with an internet film review; and Michael des David’s fishing column will inspire you to get out on the water.

Enjoy our Featured Creative and On the Hammock interviews, and Helen Syme’s Health Matters column (strong is the new skinny!) to get you ready for summer. There’s an article on how to be your best in tough times, a link to the Coochie Diary, island organisations have provided updates on their activities on the island, and of course, enjoy island poetry and our super useful island businesses and services directory.

Finally, please support the sponsor and advertisers who make publication possible. We are very grateful to the outlets who stock CIN and our volunteers and BIG THANKS to subeditor Helen Symes. Oh! and check out CIN’s podcast – we’ve been having LOTS of fun connecting with men and women across the globe, talking about the joys and challenges of island life – these podcast interviews are full of rich insights. Don’t miss out.

Thanks for supporting Coochie Island News. It means a lot to us.

Have a lovely weekend,
