General Sailing Links

I started the link directory on Sailingahead.com with a couple of websites I found entertaining, informative or worth being noticed for other reasons. Over time, I included more and more links and I had to add sub-sections, which pushed the original links to the bottom.

Since they don't deserve to be neglected, I decided to create a subsection especially for these links. They were the seed of the directory! I hope you find them useful, this sub-page is closed for further entries; however, if you think that there is a link that just has to be included, feel free to tell me about it!
