Sailors are online – is your marine business advertising?

We live in a ‘now’ world, sailors want NOW news! Forget about an audience waiting two months for print news, many of them can’t wait two hours!!

50% of our Sail-World audience do not wait to sit down with their laptop or their desktop computer to discover the latest news on Sail-World – they come on line on their mobile phones and tablets.

So marine businesses have to advertise online. It makes sense after all - to catch fish you have to fish where the fish are!!


This is a huge year for Australian sailing. The 2012 Olympic sailing regatta starts in Weymouth on Sunday July 29 2012.

Australia has a good chance of a record medal haul. Right now Tom Slingsby, Matt Belcher and Malcolm Page, Nathan Outteridge and Iain Jensen are on top of their game. Brendan Casey and The Golden girls Elise Rechichi and Belinda Stowell, Jessica Crisp and Krystal Weir could all stand on the podium. - this is going to be an exciting regatta for Australia and the build up will be huge.

During the 2012 Olympic coverage Sail-World.com will send out 140,000 dedicated newsletters each day - overall a record total 3.5 million event newsletters. These will be regionalised so advertisers will get best possible exposure in their own markets.
