Support our many vendors
It's always a time to recall all our great friends who also serve us as vendors. Order boats, photos, sailing gear, sails. The sailing industry is a closeknit group of enthusiasts who work hard all year for our enjoyment. Consider a call this week to your favorite supplier for that last minute Christmas gift. Women, you can NEVER go wrong with a sailing gift. Men, don't be surprised at all the bags, jewelry or other sail artwork your special crew might like. 

Still time to drive for your gifts, obtain a gift certificate or just plain tell your loved one, "It's a new sail, honey!"
