What an audience for your product!
As an advertiser with appeal to the cruising sailor, we want your expert articles, and will publish them, with free credits to your company.
We’d love to get any story that would be of general interest to the cruising sailor, but here are some ideas:
Advice and discussion about your area of the marine industry Anecdotes which are funny, interesting or bizarre. Profiles of interesting people Adventures of sailors with whom you have had contact
In the cruising area, sailors have time to read. If you’ve sold products to sailors who would like to write about their experiences, or are sufficiently enthusiastic to be interesting interview subjects, please put us in contact with them.
This is an important audience. Start thinking and writing today – and DON’T worry about the style – that’s likely to give you ‘writer’s block’ – just give us the information, and we'll do the rest.
