Equipment & Logistics...

Having good equipment is an essential part of success in sailboat racing. But it's not the be-all-and-end-all. The 'great' think about equipment is that it gives us something to blame when the race doesn't go well, so part of SailJuice's mission is to help you work out when the equipment really is to blame, but also to keep you honest when the problem lies with, well... YOU!

Logistics is the term we use to describe all that other stuff that you have to do to get yourself and your boat on the water in the best possible state of preparation. Not always the most thrilling of topics, but often it's this stuff - the organisation and the preparation - that separates the champions from the rest of us.
