Which Magazine for the Winter Blahs ?

Winter is coming here in the Midwest, and I need a monthly sailing fix to stay sane. I would like to change-up from Sail magazine just for something different, but I have no experience with other publications.

Which magazine (sailing related) do you look forward to receiving the first of each month ? Or is it too early to be asking winter questions !!

Thanks in Advance
Dan J

You won't go wrong with Good Old Boat. Especially for a mid-west sailor. The editors are based in Minnesota.

I also like Practical Sailor for gear reviews. Good to have if you have a lot of boat work planned.

+ 1 on wayyy to early to be talking about winter..

I get Sail anyway..as part of some membership? Maybe ASA...otherwise, I'd probably not subscribe..

I like... Soundings...not specifically Sailing related, but quite good articles and info, bought a subscription at last years Annapolis boat show.

I like Practical Sailor..for their gear reviews too,

Seaworthy..more a newsletter, comes to me via a Boat US membership..

GOB is quite good!

Thanks All -

I will get Good Old Boat. Then this winter, when those Minnesot'ns forget to close the door and let their cold air come down, I'll have something to read while my wife watches American Idol .....

blt2ski will become famous soon enough
Skiing and or SKi are not too bad for winter blahs too! makes one one to head to the mtns. Snowboarding might be another if you like that flavor of snow usage/sliding!

As far as sailing oriented rags......ALL of them have plus's and minus's frankly.

GOB has too many cruiser oriented reviews etc. A good rag, I've been hleping a local writer get reviews, had my boat in it....it has a place. altho not at the top of my list.

Sail has good and bad/subscribe. I also get Sailing World, and Sailing as a subscription. Both have good and bad, along with they ea have an audience they are going after. CRusing World is the same

I also like our local freeby rags, 48North and yachting. I also pickup upon occasion some of the rags that come from the UK.

Practical Sailor, a lot like Consumer reports, do not not have a use for them, or money spent on the subscription than I get back in articles etc.
