Celebrating the Sailjuice.com 10th Anniversary

Sailjuice.com launched at the RYA Dinghy Show back in March 2009. We set out to provide an online resource of top tips from some of the world's best sailors. Funny thing is, some of our paying subscribers have been great sailors in their own right, and have even gone to win Olympic medals! We're not going to quite claim full credit for those medals, but we're pretty proud all the same.

 

In the UK, the SailJuice Winter Series has become established as the go-to travellers circuit for small boat racing during the cold months. You can find out more at www.SailJuiceSeries.com

The RYA Dinghy Show is where we do the prizegiving for the Series, and it's great to see yet another class win the circuit. In the past 10 winters, we've seen nine different classes win the top spot.

Selden Sailjuice Trophy

This year we're launching, in fact we've already launched, the Great British Sailing Challenge, which was the logical extension of what we've been doing these past 10 winters. You can find out more at SailingChallenge.org. But if you don't live in the UK, you might be thinking, 'why should I care?' Well, because ultimately we want to move the concept worldwide. Joined up racing for all kinds of boat, racing against each other wherever they are in the world.

Since the beginning, Sailjuice.com has been all about asking the top sailors 'how and why do you what you do?' and passing that information on to other keen sailors around the world. One of the pleasures of this job is getting to interview some of the very best, and at this year's Dinghy Show I ran a clinic in the Coaching Zone with Paul Brotherton, a former 470 Olympian and gold-medal winning coach for the 'Three Blondes in a Boat' who won the Yngling title at the Beijing 2008 Games. If you couldn't make it to the Show, make sure you're signed up for the Sailjuice Newsletter where I'll be summarising what Paul revealed during our in-depth chat.
