Text of Story

 

While we appreciate your submission, it may not necessarily be published.

We have a formal editorial review process. If we decide your submission is sufficiently newsworthy to publish, it will be edited to ensure it meets our strict editorial standards.

There are some key style rules you need to follow.

Numbers.

Numbers first second third to ninth, are to be written, do not use 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 9th.

Places beyond ninth can be 10th, 11th, 23rd etc.

Similarly with plain numbers - in correct written style it is a nine boat fleet, not a 9 boat fleet.

Ampersand - Do not use ‘&’  unless its the official name of a company eg Cutter & Bucks

Proper Names and FULL CAPS.

The use of FULL CAPS has been considered shouting for more than a decade online. Please do not use them in titles, people's names or boat names.

Does not use FULL CAPS for boat names in copy; the boat is Ragamuffin, not RAGAMUFFIN. (OK in results tables)

The sailor is Ben Ainslie, not Ben AINSLIE (ISAF is out of step with all mainstream and marine media, please ignore their incorrect use of FULL CAPS.)

We appreciate your co-operation.
