There’s a brand new sailing forum online now called Anything Sailing.
It was founded by three sailors that were tired of seeing threads about faulty products censored. One of the sailors is a good friend of mine and sails a custom 42′ racing sailboat with a 10′ draft. The other two I know from other on-line forums, and are pretty good people.
I hope you’ll give the forum a shot. It’s been up about a week now, and already has over 200 members. Not too bad for a forum that’s been growing only by word of mouth. It has a pretty good base of threads already, including some excellent posts by another friend of mine, Maine Sail, whose work puts most of the professional publications to shame.
