I have for interest been running a poll on the NZ Classic Yacht Association website / forum - see results below. Very small numbers as most people are still on holiday but you will see that the UK 'Classic Boat' out performs WB here. But finding a book store that stocks WB is always a challenge & those that do have an interesting policy - they only buy what they sold the pervious month, so they will never grow their sales + if some random comes in & buys a copy, as a regular you miss out.
Personal feedback - I was once a 'buy every issue' reader but now find the editorial spread too broad so now buy the issues that appeal to me. I do however 'hang-out' on the WBF a lot
I also think that with the change in ownership with the UK Classic Boat magazine they have climbed to a new high in classic boating publishing, its just stunning, so much so that I have just subscribed to the on-line version as I can not weight for the snail mail hard copy to reach NZ (but still buy it when it arrives). On the negative side this website is lacking
