 Support Sailing News ! - Your help is still needed! For more than 3 months, the Corona restrictions have forced us to publish our news in a reduced form. An end to the lockdown now seems to be slowly but surely approaching, and one can look forward to the new easing that the Federal Council will announce tomorrow. We are very pleased that two-thirds of our readers kept on visiting our pages. ----- Sailing is and remains a diverse, complex and attractive sport, and the numerous webinars and films that we have put together for you, but also our reports on the massive management problems at World Sailing and the not very supportive handling of the Corona measures at Swiss Sailing, have nevertheless made it possible for us to put together an interesting program for you. ----- Nevertheless, we cannot deny that we are having trouble surviving without the support of our dear readers, as well as the advertising partners. Another end of the month is coming with numerous financial obligations. Have you already had time to make a voluntary subscription contribution? Many thanks for your kind support
