With the launch of the all-new website we are also pleased to present the Foredeck Club, exclusively for boat owners who are serious about their sailing.

As a special offer for Y&Y readers we are offering a free 50€ voucher when you join the Foredeck Club - just enter the code 'Y&Y20' in the application form below.

Here at we are passionate about sailing and promoting performance solutions which mean lighter, safer, faster and more enjoyable sailing. Whilst we aim to provide the best technical information online, we know it is not always easy to specify and choose the right gear. So, the Foredeck Club is our way to get to know you and your boat and help you make the right hardware and rigging choices.

Knowing more about your boat also helps us to identify specific offers and promotions which might be attractive to you. We are constantly working with manufacturers to identify special offers which are then made available exclusively to our Foredeck Club Members.

We will also be creating additional tools plus online forums and other educational resources, specifically for members, to help you get the answers you need when you need them. As a club member you will also be allocated a single point of contact who will work with you, and be on hand, to assist you.

Why is it called the Foredeck Club?

We thought long and hard about the name, but we quickly homed in on the Foredeck Club, because:

  • is all about sailing systems and the foredeck is closest to the mast which is the centre of all the sailing action.
  • We care about hardware and rigging and want to work with similar minded individuals who like to be actively involved in specifying their gear.
  • We think these types of boat owners will be as happy on the foredeck (with a beer) as they are on the helm (with a G&T)!

It's free to join with lot's of benefits. All you have to do is click on the visit the website here and tell us a bit about you, your boat and your sailing style and we will send you login details for your discounted account.
