Change is constant and regrettably sometimes change is positive and sometimes negative.
We are in a negative phase and have been forced to review the magazine.
A cruel mix of a lack of advertising revenue, increasing costs and the general financial gloom have forced us to suspend publication for the time being. This means that our monthly Free2View digitsls magazine are suspended and more significantly our printed quarterly magazines are suspended.
One does not start a multihull magazine as an entrepreneur greedy for profit but as an enthusiast keen to fill the need for honest, objective and comprehensive information on multihulls.
We have tried to do this for the last four years and many say that we have done well. But we have never quite been able to gain the momentum that we needed to ensure we could ride out a recession particularly when we rely on our friends and colleagues in the UK market for our core advertisers. They have been brilliant.
But we have rarely been able to get the French manufacturers to support our endeavour and without them, well...
We are not alone our colleagues in the US at Multihulls have faced their own struggle and have the backing of the Catamaran Compnay to ensure their survival.
Be sure that we will be back. I am not one to give up and we will ensurer that all of our subscribers hawho have lost out will be repaid. We have no trade creditors, they have all been paid.
If anyone with means wishes to see us publish again we are keen, willing and able but for now our funds are exhausted.
