Auckland show, BIA 'Have Your Say', Sailworld hits 3.5m for Olympics

This is the start of a frantic season of events, boating activities and in the lead up to the Olympic Games in 2012, global marketing focusing on all things sailing.

Our line-up of stories reflects the burst of launches from the recent Cannes and upcoming Monaco Yacht Show, as well as close to home, a preview of the Auckland International Boat Show which starts in 2 days time amid the passion and peak competition of Rugby World Cup fever.

The 2012 London Olympic Sailing Regatta in Weymouth is now just 10 months away (29th July -11th August 2012). with large audiences around the world will have its largest ever Olympic media team and it will break new ground with a record 3.5 million event newsletters.

Parent company TetraMedia Publisher Rob Kothe said 'During the Qingdao Olympics the Sail-World team was sending out 80,000 newsletters each day providing the most detailed coverage of the Olympic sailing regatta of any media organisation in the world.

'Four years on, the sailing media landscape has continued to tip towards the Internet and by July 2012 will be sending out 140,000 single click unsubscribe newsletters each day as part of its Olympic coverage.'

Richard Gladwell, Sail-World Editor at Large and New Zealand Editor will be heading up the Sail-World Olympic newsletter team coverage.

Sail-World's Olympic series will be a 25 newsletter run, a total of 3.5 million newsletters. While it sounds a huge number, remember that by mid 2012 the monthly unique audience across its U.S., Canadian, UK, Europe and African, Asian, New Zealand and Australian sites will be bumping on 250,000 sailors. Across 2012 will on currently indications record at least two million unique readers.

To get onboard and reach this covetable number of marine industry and avid sailing consumers, get in touch with our Australian ad representative, Phil Arane on 0407 076 585 or email Phil (at) This is a once in four-year opportunity to capitalise on the global interest in the Olympic Games and the surrounding momentum they deliver.

Pop back during the week for more on local and international innovations, initiatives and ground-breaking research in to the marine industry (coming soon!)

Until next week - happy reading, happy boating!
