2018 Racing Guide
 
The 2017 Racing Guide was met with tremendous excitement and enthusiasm to the extent that our supply ran out! The 2018 Racing Guide is now in development and will once again provide sailors - both racers and cruises - with a variety of articles and resources on numerous nautical topics. The Guide is also an excellent advertising vehicle for retailers and service providers in the industry.
 
Available in March 2018, it will be distributed to major Canadian and U.S. yacht clubs, marinas, chandleries, and at boat shows and regattas throughout 2018.
