Study packs, ebooks and some dinghy plans can be supplied by email as files. Select the email option when adding shipping in the order process.

Email study packs and ebooks are sent as PDF files. These files are large, so a high speed internet connection is needed. Select the email option for shipping in the order process.

All other packages are supplied only as hard copy paper prints.


We generally print and despatch within 2-3 working days, depending on pressure of orders.

Delivery in North America is standard mail with delivery within 1 week of shipping. Delivery elsewhere is airmail, delivery time depending on your location, normally within 7 days to Western Europe and 14-21 days elsewhere.

All prices exclude packaging and shipping. Shipping will be added as follows (except items for email delivery):-

Standard delivery within USA and Canada - $7.50 for each item under $100 and $15 for each item of $100 or more. Plans that include patterns will have a higher shipping charge.

Standard delivery elsewhere - US$25 for each item under US$100 and $50 for each item of $100 or more. Plans that include patterns will have a higher shipping charge. If you want Express delivery then these prices will increase by 100% to $50 and $100 respectively but delivery will be faster and more certain.

Courier Service - Mail services can be erratic and very occasionally parcels don't arrive. We have experienced 6-8 week delivery, even to Europe. We have no control over parcels once mailed. If you select standard delivery and your parcel has not arrived 3 months after mailing, we will replace it subject to a service charge of 20% of the value of the order and delivery of the replacement by courier service, at charges as set out below.

Charges for courier delivery are as shown below. You should have your order within 2-4 working days of despatch.
