Customer Reviews

Sail Faster/Safer

Well layed out, with some really useful content from credible sailors, but let down by the overly sponsor-heavy hand of the marketing department. The laboriously repetitive intro to each of the videos, set to tedious corporate muzac, detracted from my enjoyment and tested my commitment to continue.
Having said that, it delivers it's title promise at a reasonable cost - even if it is more expensive than advertised.

Tried 4 times to download - no go, so disappointed, and obviously can't rate content!
