GWS 2013 Year In Review

2013 Was a great year for us here at Get Wet Sailing. We had the honor of interviewing some amazing sailors, the opportunity to review some fantastic sailing products, and had some great adventures along the way. We can’t wait to see where the winds will take us in 2014. Who knows, we could be reviewing your favorite product, testing out a new boat or talking to you and hearing all about your sailing stories! Thank you to all of you new friends we’ve made this year and we look forward to meeting many more of you. And mostly, thanks to all of our readers, without you this magazine would not be possible.

Below are the links to our GWS 2013 Year in Review. As always, if you like something, please leave a comment. We want to provide you with information, stories, articles, and videos you want to see. If you have a product you’d like to us review, leave a comment or send us a message. Here’s looking forward to a great 2014!
