Start Sailing Now, the free new sailor guide created by SpinSheet, widened its outreach beyond the Chesapeake Bay area to new sailors all over the country.

“As a regional publication we tend to focus on sailors in Maryland, Virginia, Washington, D.C., and nearby states,” editor Molly Winans said in a statement. “We were pleasantly surprised by how many sailors outside our region have sent us requests and praise for Start Sailing Now, so we decided to broaden our scope in 2012 and the future.”

To gain a wider audience, the publication moved specific information about sailing on Chesapeake Bay to its website resource page and added specific information for New England, New York and New Jersey, Florida, the Midwest, the Pacific Northwest and California.

Helpful for newcomers and the skippers who bring them aboard, Start Sailing Now is distributed at select maritime locations and other potential sailor hangouts.
