Advertising With Us!

We reach more Chesapeake Bay sailors than any other publication. Monthly press runs average 30,000, 12 months of the year, and 100% of the readers are interested in sailing and the Chesapeake Bay. There is no "wasted circulation" with SpinSheet.

SpinSheet is easy to find at more than 750 locations throughout the mid-Atlantic. Active and would-be sailors find SpinSheet at marine centers, restaurants, visitor centers, yacht clubs, major regattas, and cruising rallies. Off the shoreline, SpinSheet reaches sailors at home in Washington, DC, Philadelphia, Richmond, Northern Virginia, Baltimore, and Southern PA. We have carefully built and tracked our distribution over 17 years. We know how to get your message into the hands of the most active sailors.

"Every month I pick up a copy of SpinSheet and PropTalk. Both provide great articles, excellent ads, and always updates on many local businesses. Just a note about the ads, for some reason your advertisers are the ones I need - a marina, restaurant, boat surveyor, engine parts, and inflatables. All items I have needed and contacted through your ads!" David L. - Reader
