Sailing-News launches US site

Monday, March 1, 2010   
Starting today, March 1, 2010, our acclaimed site is available in a localized US-version: covers all the exciting sailing in North America and the important events in Europe and elsewhere around the world. In addition, we offer industry news, links to sailing books and publications and coverage of environmental topics that concern us sailors.
What makes us different? Sailing is a global sport and it happens 24/7. That's why we publish seven days a week and in three major languages (English, German and French).
We value your time: That's why we serve our content as brief daily updates, including images, videos and original sources. No need to register or read lengthy e-mails. Just bookmark our page in your Web browser.
We offer choices: Quickly scan the headlines of your favorite topics in a few seconds or visit the links to read more in-depth coverage. It's up to you. Do it at your desk or on the go.
We have an audience: Our German and French sites have been online for five years now, so we are not new to this game. Professional racers and weekend warriors, big-boat racers, dinghy, multihull or kite sailors, sailing associations, clubs and event organizers, more than 100,000 of them have been turning to our site for their daily fix of sailing news.
Who is in charge? Founder Beat Stegmeier from Zurich, Switzerland, and US Editor Dieter Loibner in Portland, Oregon, are two veteran sailors and sailing journalists with decades of experience in Olympic classes and all manner of other boats. In their early years they used to compete in the Finn Dinghy, so the claim 'by sailors for sailors' stands up to scrutiny.
Check us out and let us know what you think. We love to hear from you.
One more thing: Please tell your sailing buddies about us.
