Monday Editorial

by Rob Kothe & the Sail-World Team on 5 Feb 2007
Sail-World had a lot of fun with the 505 Worlds last week, with our mark rounding data allowing sailors around the world the chance to keep up with the racing, minute by minute.

One more reason why we had 70,000 visitors to Sail-World in January and expect a similar number in the short month of February.

Of course sailors could wait and read about the 505's in March or April, but funnily enough they voted with their mouses to find the news now. As ISAF ex-President says..the Internet is the THE sailing news source.

If you know of a marine company who needs exposure to our audience, suggest they call Liam on 0405497423.

Tom Braidwood will be at the Newcastle Brewery at 5pm tonight. We expect some tall stories there. Micah Lane and Jack McCartney from Vicsail were telling some this morning too.

Read about the Workforce Marine Mumm 30's and all the weekend racing.

One of our newer advertisers is Nauticalia, the marine story in the Rocks in Sydney. If you are Sydney based, make sure you go there...Valentine's Day is coming up and so is Mother's Day.

You know the lines; it’s when Ted Striker says, “Surely you cannot be serious?” To which Rumack then replies, “I am serious, and don’t call me Shirley!”

The door’s been flung open – again

Yes, the proverbial door has been cast ajar before, often to much fanfare, and not that much has been achieved.

Practice makes perfect?
There are a lot of us who try to get out on the water whenever we can. There are a lot of us who try to get out on the water whenever we can - be it a club race, a weekend open or a championship. The general feeling is that the more we sail, the better we get, but is that actually the case?
