Australian Titles, State Titles, Club Titles - UPLOAD News Photos, Results NOW!!

Now we are entering that time of year when it ALL Happens.

The Sail Melbourne regatta is closing on the Medal Races, the Rolex Trophy series is getting interesting.

Our stories start today with the Mirror Worlds in WA, it's on the same week at the Moth, Dragon, Musto Skiff Worlds, - January 8-15th.

The Australian Etchells Championships will be on then too.

(No we've not forgotten the Sydney to Hobart, plenty of news from that on Sail-World but we send that out in a different newsletter this time of year.

Now it's the Championship Sailing Season - with that bewitching combination of summer and School Holidays.

On the top of almost every page of this site there is a green bar which says 'Upload News,Photos,Results,Events'

Please please draw it to the attention of YOUR Class Nationals event management and Public Relations person.

Over the last year we have run more than 600 event stories uploaded direct to Sail-World.com by smart people, who rather than complaining that no one runs anything about our events, got off their butts and loaded content direct to Sail-World.

Some of the reports were professional, some needed a little work, some were rough diamonds, but the important thing is they reached their target audience. Its a big audience, 100,000 + in Oz and approaching 220,000 world-wide each month.

So this summer don't let YOUR class be the only one that does not have a Nationals report on Sail-World.com and the search engines.

Some of the best PR teams send previews, daily reports and wrap stories - will that be you???
