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

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?

Races, Regattas and Disruptive Technology
x In the olden days, the major cost of attending a regatta for yacht owners and crew was the accommodation and still is. Of course for cruising yachties, traditionally the crew stays on boat, during regatta week, because after all it is replete with dishwasher, washing machine, a good cellar and an oven in which you could cook a roast. For racing boat owners or dinghy owners, life was not so easy.

World Sailing Cup - Ahead a Dead Rat in a Shoe v3 or Spring Daffodils
While a host of major sailing events go from strength to strength, the Sailing World Cup has very major issues. Last night my Irish better half was sitting beside me on the sofa watching an Australian version of the popular TV Cooking Program My Kitchen Rules on a tablet with her headphone while I was watching Diehard II for the seventeenth time (it’s a boy thing) on TV. She suddenly spluttered and laughed, took off her headphones and motioned for me to mute Diehard. (Seriously!!)
