Slow delivery

I didn't receive my book yet. It's been about a month since I purchased it.

Sailrite Response

I reviewed your order and it shipped from our warehouse very quickly. Unfortunately, USPS first class to South Africa is extremely slow. I do hope you receive the order soon. Thank you for your business!
