  1. When you are competing, you undoubtedly want to be sure that your boat and your sailing is in mint condition. But you should also be maintaining the boat throughout the rest of the year, repairing and replacing anything that needs it. Getting new chandlery for above of below deck doesn’t need to be expensive though, as there are many sites online with large catalogues and plenty of discounts on offer too!
