Instructions and Help on Filling out the Add/Edit listing page

Each plan has different options/fields to fill out. The higher plans have the same options as the lower plans, but have additional options: FREE; ADVANCED; PREMIUM

The red asterisk indicates fields/options you must select. Others are voluntary.

You can come back and edit any of these options/fields at any time as long as you always fill out the required (*) fields. You can partially fill it out and return to finish it. Each time, after it is paid for, the listing will be reviewed for appropriate content.

For further help, email manager@southeastsailing.com. You can set up a phone call to help walk you through this form. It can be confusing the first few times around.
