Sail-World Editor at Large, Richard Gladwell says ‘We will have a very big team on the water at Weymouth by sailing media standards and we will be able to be spread across the courses to catch the action.
'As a worldwide network operating 24x7, our news is well ahead of the curve. Last year Sail-World had an astounding 45% increase in page views and 25% increase in time on site. Further growth is being fuelled by iPhones/iPads and Android equivalents now more than 30% of our audience.'

Publisher Rob Kothe commented 'Internet coverage of sailing events is very significant. Currently Sail-World.com has 45,000 North American online newsletter subscribers across its racing and cruising sites in the USA and Canada, another 45,000 in the Asia Pacific and 20,000 in UK, Europe and Africa. UK and Europe are our fastest growing markets, as the London Olympics approaches.
'With that significant audience we have the ability for industry advertisers to chose regional markets, decide their own advertising schedules and change their own advertising content, running multiple ads in each ad space on daily rotation hyperlinked to different web addresses.
'We have strong support from our existing advertisers and we are being approached by major marine companies wishing to reach our Sail-World.com audiences, either world-wide or regionally.
'Ad places are limited and we ask that potential advertisers contact our media sales representatives who will be happy to quote on a range of these very cost effective Olympic media packages.’
