How to Submit Your Sailing Stories and Articles for Publication on this Site

Got Any Sailing Stories, Confessions, Anecdotes or Technical Articles?

All of us have at least one! Our readers would love to read yours.

Would you get a buzz at seeing your work on the internet?

If so, getting it published on this site couldn't be easier!

Just fill in the form below. 

Click on the links at the foot of this page to read what others have submitted!


But first, a few guidelines:

  • Your article must be related to sailing or sailboats;
  • Your article must be your own work - not ripped off from anyone else;
  • It must be neither too long nor too short - an ideal article size is around 400 to 750 words;
  • Ideally, it will be illustrated with a few of your own pics. The form below allows you to include up to four. Don't forget to add captions if they help to explain what the pics are all about.

So, what are you waiting for? Get writing!
