What Others are Saying...
"I think the site is brilliant!!! I believe that knowledge is more important than material things in sailing. I'll happily buy a book for a tenner or do a day's coaching for 50 quid just to pick up one thing.
But already after sieving through only a few articles on SailJuice I believe my knowledge has increased substantially. I have spent five times that on the odd day's coaching and learnt nothing like as much."
