Wanna know now or in a couple of months?

by Al Constable & the Sail-World Team on 3 Nov 2006
‘The Internet is now the preferred news source, over television,radio, newspapers and magazines with twice the audience of network television'‘ writes a respected US Media consultancy.

Its easy to see why….we don’t all want to watch the same news… we want to click onto the NOW news, when we want too and find the news on our subject of choice and we can online.

Its why the sailing audience is online.

Today Sail-World has a breaking news story from Auckland that has a deadline for surrender of the missing piece of the America’s Cup, which is just two and a half hours from now, 5pm Auckland time.

Then we have story, image and vision from the magnificent Seawind regatta last weekend, Interesting to see the yacht companies are catching on fast to the digital revolution.

We have a story called Life,Love and winches from one of our new feature writers Helen Hopcroft.

We have the Entry list of a few minutes ago for the Audi Etchells Worlds,

Today is the deadline for applications for the Rolex Sydney Hobart.

If you are entering this race and you still have paper work to complete by the CYCA 5pm deadline STOP READING THIS & GET BACK TO THE PAPER WAR!!

Tomorrow we will bring you the list.

Next week it’s the Beneteau Cup, the Slam Etchells Nationals.

This week at Hamilton Island we showed the Australian Sailing Team, a glimpse of the new SMS and Voice technology our Olympic aspirants will be able to use from a couple of weeks hence, to deliver reports from regatta’s around the world. This is the same system the Rolex Sydney to Hobart crews will be able to use, so you can be up close and personal with the south bound fleet.

All reasons why the Old Media is being overun world wide and why the ranks of our advertisers continue to grow. Today we have Foxtel Digital ads running on Sail-World.

If your company wants to reach the sailing community that voted with their mouses moving to Sail-World, call Liam Daly from Nautical Media Partner on 0405 497 423 liam@nauticalmediapartners.com

…and don’t call me Shirley!
Ah yes! It could only be the truly inimitable Dr. Rumack (Leslie Nielsen) from Airplane! Ah yes! It could only be the truly inimitable Dr. Rumack (Leslie Nielsen) from Airplane! (And that takes us all the way back to 1980 – believe it or not.) 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!”

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?
