With a graceful new colour scheme and easier, more intuitive navigation, we hope to provide you with a web experience that delivers yachting content in a rich but simple way to you. In addition to the new visuals we are beginning an exciting new online segment called 'Ask the Experts' with Rob MacLeod, The Informed Boater. Rob is eagerly awaiting for your boating questions of all kinds that he will take to the experts in each topic area and will create video responses that will be posted online.

Please drop us a line anytime with your questions and your feedback. We love to hear from our readers!
