Guidelines for Photographers

We are constantly on the lookout for exciting new photographs that we can use in special sections and in collateral print promotion. Photographs must be original, must have been taken by you, and and must not have been previously published. We will provide credit to the photographer for any photograph we use. Unfortunately we are at present not in a position to pay for photography. is a web community about people who love sailing, both cruising and racing, and do most of it in their home territorial waters. Look for action shots, with special emphasis on close ups or close competition in racing. Colorful scenes that show people expressing the joy of sailing work best. Special views of anchorages, unusual sailing predicaments, pets boating, and beautiful boats are also desirable. Concentrate on good composition and avoid shooting scenes that look cluttered.


Submissions should be sent via email. prior to sending a submission, please contact us via our online form so that we may send you an email address.

We do not provide a direct link to avoid the unfortunate pick up of website email address links by spam generators.
