Back Issues of SAIL Magazine (70's-80's)...any use?

We are cleaning out a basement and have about 96 back issues of SAIL Magazine dating to the 1970's and 1980's. I hate to just toss them into the recycling bin...does anyone have any use for them? I'm thinking maybe a maritime museum or a library with a yachting related collection. They won't be cheap to ship, but we can figure something out.

Please post a reply or send me an e-mail if you have any suggestions. Thanks!!!

I'll be glad to take them if you haven't given them away already... I'll live in Annapolis area.

Hey Rick, At one time I had every issue of Sail and lost them in a nasty divorce when my ex tossed them for revenge. I'd be dancing in the clouds if you still have them.

Re: Back Issues of SAIL Magazine (70's-80's)...any use?

Hey everyone:

Sorry to have gone underground for the past year.

We found a good use for our old back issues of SAIL magazine. We eventually donated them to the Picton Maritime Museum and Archives in Picton, Ontario, CANADA (info@navalmarinearchive.com). The museum is actively looking for more donations and old documents, so please don't throw stuff away!

Looking through the old issues before I sent them off was really interesting. I was able to re-read articles that I had read decades before and had inspired me as a kid to take up sailing! Just throwing them in the dumpster seemed way too ignominious an end for some very fine writing and photography.

Rick--

They're all available on a CD already very inexpensively so the printed copies may not be of any value save to your local library or sailing club.

"It is not so much for its beauty that the sea makes a claim upon men's hearts, as for that subtle something, that quality of air, that emanation from the waves, that so wonderfully renews a weary spirit."

Whomever claims them: Can you look in the 82/83/84 issues for any Morgan ads, and see if you see any? I posted awhile back trying to track down an old Morgan ad that I was in as a kid, if you run across any Morgan ads, please let me know.

I was 9 years old in the ad and I'd love to see it, thanks!
