In addition to the title sponsor of the SailJuice Winter Series, GJW Direct, we are grateful to the continued involvement of our series sponsors providing prizes and support throughout the winter.  New for the 2014/15 season, there will be spot prizes at every event and fleets with significant numbers of series entrants will be allocated a series sponsor - see the classes page for more details.

GJW Direct are the UK’s largest direct pleasure craft insurers. Taking Dinghy insurance to a new level, their on-line, all-inclusive dinghy policy packages a wide range of benefits such as new for old on all parts, full racing risk cover and no limits on the age of the boat or the user. They are offering the cover at a highly competitive premium and getting an on-line quote takes less than 30 seconds. Get a quote here.

More recently GJW Direct have added a multi-dinghy scheme - offering all the benefits of just one policy and one renewal date with the promise of even further savings. (Call 0151 473 8000 for details.)
