We have been receiving some great reports from a whole range of sailing events, Australian National Championships and State titles ... something like 20 over the last two weeks alone… and we thank everyone for that!!

If your club, association or race committee would like to publicise or report on an event especially if its National or State titles, stories, pictures and or results can be uploaded via our Sail-World.com Contributors System at the top right of the site. Click on the link Submit News Photos etc. and follow the instructions and don't forget the URL of your website or event as we provide a live hyperlink back to your site/event.

Sail-World's 220,000 readers are hungry for sailing news and Sail-World welcomes your contributions.

If you’ve not yet seen reports on your Club or Class on Sail-World recently, send a nice email to your Club or Class Publicity officer… so everyone will.

AND going forward please ask your event organisers to make sure sending event reports, photos, videos to Sail-World.com are high on the priority list for 2012 and onwards.

Sailors are online; our Asia Pacific audience is some 30 times larger than the Australian sailing magazine that I used to read as a kid.

Thank you one and all for your contributions to date; we look forward to receiving your news.
