Launch: Classic Sailor

Classic Sailor, a new monthly magazine for sailors and boat enthusiasts of all types, goes on sale 2 September, priced £3.95.

According to distributors COMAG Specialist: The first new classic boating title to launch this century, Classic Sailor will be the definitive guide for the classic boating and motorboating world.

Produced by an experienced crew of sailors of all types, the team behind Classic Sailor have all previously worked in journalism, in both magazines and newspapers.

Aimed at anyone who loves sailing as much as the Classic Sailor team, this new nautical title will be written for sailing enthusiasts, by sailing enthusiasts.

Full of the latest news about the hobby, product reviews of boats, gear and accessories, as well as interviews with sailors who have interesting nautical stories to tell, every issue of Classic Sailor will have something for anyone with an interest in sailing.

Luxurious in content and feel, Classic Sailor will devote most of its pagination to editorial and is limiting advertising to only 32 pages in every issue.

Run in conjunction with its online community of fans, Classic Sailor is creating a ‘Go-To Directory’ of suppliers of products and services for boat owners, which will eventually become a core part of the magazine, providing lists by region and specialism.

The October issue of Classic Sailor will have an exclusive feature on comedian and TV presenter Griff Rhys Jones’ experience entering the Fastnet yacht race.

As well as this, the launch issue of Classic Sailor will look at 21 Great British boat designers, list some of the best places in France for dinghy sailing, explore the maritime heritage of the East coast of England and explain the best techniques for jib sailing.

As well as all this, the Classic Sailor team visited all of the main trade shows and regattas over the summer and the launch issue of the title will have all the news.
