BLUE WATER SAILING RENEWS SAIL AMERICA SEMINAR SPONSORSHIP
After a blockbuster year with seminars that witnessed record attendance, George Day, publisher and editor of Blue Water Sailing, recently signed a new deal for 2011 to be the official Presenting Sponsor of Strictly Sail shows in Chicago, Miami and Oakland.
"We believe sponsoring the seminar program is a great way for us to interact with our readers and gain new readers for the magazines and websites including Blue Water Sailing, Cruising Compass and MQ-Multihulls Quarterly, as each is valued for the quality of the information they provide and the authority of the editors and authors,” said Day. “Many of our authors give seminars, so our involvement with the program is very natural. Good, valuable information on sailing, boats and the cruising life ... that's what our publications are all about and that's what the seminars we sponsor are all about. It is classic belly-to-belly, grass roots marketing, and it works. You'd be amazed at how many old friends we've caught up with and how many new friends we've made.”
Added Sail America Executive Director Jonathan Banks, “We are absolutely thrilled to welcome George and the crew at Blue Water Sailing back as our Seminar Series Presenting Sponsor. Last year’s events were unprecedented in terms of both attendance and overall seminar attendee satisfaction. We’re already well underway in what appears to be yet another great year together, and we greatly appreciate the support afforded by this mutually winning relationship.”
