Advertise Your Regatta in the Print Magazine

In the monthly printed issue, SOUTHWINDS lists races in the Southeast eight coastal states and Bahamas for free with date, event and sponsoring organization in the “Racing Calendar” at the end of the monthly printed magazine (read Current Issue online).

In our "Racing News and Regattas" section (in the front of the magazine), we list upcoming national and international regattas in the Southeast. For other regatta pre-race write-ups with a description in this section, cost is $35/month ($25 for second month) for the first 130 words and $45/month ($35 for second month) for 200 words total. No listing over 200 words allowed.

Regattas that run display ads 1/4 page or larger (we give regatta ads reduced rates) will get 150 words at no additional charge for two months. Email, or 941-795-8704, around the first of the month preceding publication to list your event or place an ad. Contact us earlier if possible.
