From the Sailing Magazine guidelines:

SAILING Magazine is a beautiful, oversized publication that is visually stunning as well as an informative and enjoyable read. We cover all aspects of sailing, from learning how to sail in a dinghy to crossing the ocean on a large cruiser to racing around the buoys against the best sailors in the world. We typically focus on sailing in places that are realistic destinations for our readers, but will occasionally feature an outstanding and unique sailing destination.

Although beautiful destinations are one of the best parts of cruising, we are first and foremost a sailing magazine, not a travel magazine. Writers should keep in mind that although the destination is important, getting to that destination under sail and sailing in that destination should be the focus of the piece.

Short news stories for Splashes range in length from 100 to 500 words. Features range in length from 1,000 to 3,000 words, but a story should not be stretched just for the sake of adding more words. SAILING's readers are experienced sailors, so articles should be written with that in mind, using proper sailing terminology and avoid undue explanation of basic sailing jargon. SAILING does not accept poetry, first-time sail experiences, fiction or log-type stories.
