BLUE WATER SAILING TO SPONSOR STRICTLY SAIL SEMINAR SERIES
Sail America’s Executive Director Jonathan Banks recently announced that Blue Water Sailing magazine has been named “Presenting Sponsor” for the 2010 Strictly Sail™ Seminar Series to be held for show-goers attending the Strictly Sailing Chicago, Strictly Sail Miami and Strictly Sail Pacific shows.
“We are very pleased to have Blue Water Sailing come aboard as our new seminar sponsor,” Banks said. “These events are always well attended and draw thousands of sailors to the shows. With Blue Water Sailing’s support, we will be able to more fully promote the seminars and offer a broader range of topics for sailors to enjoy.”
Blue Water Sailing is the leading magazine for offshore sailors and cruisers.
“Blue Water Sailing's mission has always been to offer sailors the dream of cruising and instruction about how to make it real,” said Publisher George Day. “Sail America’s seminar series is consistent with our goal, and the impressive 2010 line-up of presenters include many of Blue Water Sailing's regular authors. It is a privilege for our magazine to support this worthwhile initiative and to become more closely aligned with the seminar program.”
Day also announced that Gill USA will join the magazine in a cross-promotional seminar incentive to include the offering of a sweepstakes featuring prizes of his ‘n her top quality Gill OS21 foul weather pants and tops.
“Gill’s OS21 gear is highly valued by offshore sailors,” said Day. “The gear is sturdy but lightweight, waterproof but breathable. The chance to win two sets of gear at each of the shows will add yet another incentive for sailors to attend the shows and the seminars.”
“With a great schedule of seminars at each of the shows and the support of Blue Water Sailing and Gill USA, the 2010 program promises to be the best we have ever offered,” said Banks.
