MAHWAH, NEW JERSEY (PRWEB) September 1, 2005
CoastalSailing.net is an online community resource for the coastal sailor who enjoys all there is about sailing and goes out for the joy of it. It's for the day sailor who snatches a lovely afternoon, for the cruiser who drops anchor in a secluded cove, for the racer who loves to get the adrenaline going, and for the coastal resident who'd like to learn more about it. It's for all those people who are out there and want to find out what's happening, want to always learn something new, and want to join a community of individuals who share their passion for the sea, and the power and majesty of the wind. Coastalsailing.net is provided by White Seahorse, Inc. and is dedicated to the Joy of SailingÂ.
Sailing resources include in-depth articles on seamanship topics, lists and reviews of books on local coastal cruising destinations, movie reviews, quarterly magazine synopses, restaurant lists, and useful website links. CoastalSailing.net will also provide overviews of products that have been tested by the staff and proven to be superior, innovative, or just plain exceptional for boating applications.
ÂEvery one of us has gone through an experience from which weÂve learned a lot, whether itÂs a safety, performance, seamanship, or product experience,Â recounts Alex Blackwell, Executive Vice President in charge of Licensing and Development for CoastalSailing.net as well as designer and webmaster for the website. ÂWe see a need to publish these experiences as a repository for all to share. I canÂt tell you how frustrating it has been to find information about such simple things that every sailor needs. The web is a perfect medium for unlimited storage and access. CoastalSailing.net will provide that resource.Â
ÂCoastalSailing.net is meant for the sailor who is passionate about getting out on their boat and seizing every moment in his or her own local waters,Â emphasizes Ms. Blackwell. ÂThe website is not targeted at the live-aboard who is planning a circumnavigation.Â ÂCoastalSailing.net will also tackle issues of importance to the environment in which we sail, and provide access to environmentally active non-profit groups to educate the sailing community,Â adds Mr. Blackwell. ÂThere are aspects of sailing that bind us all together, whether we are primarily racers or primarily cruisers. ThatÂs our emphasis.Â
