2019 Racing Guide - Here We Go Again!  
Our annual Racing Guide continues to be met with tremendous excitement and enthusiasm and remains an important keep-sakes for many boaters. The 2019 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 2019, this boater's resource will be distributed to major Canadian and U.S. yacht clubs, marinas, chandleries and regattas.
