Great to keep in touch

For someone who doesn’t get too many chances to get to the South Coast for sailing, just love the weekly update and excellent news features on sailing life.

BBC do advertising

Not a bad podcast for thise interested in the boating scean on the south coast. HOWEVER the uncritical free adverting they provide for Clipper Ventures Ltd who have had three of their customers killed in the last few years really is a bit irritating.
