The first edition of ASA’s brand new monthly e-newsletter, Sailing With Style, was sent out last week. Did you get it? Don’t miss out: you can sign up on our homepage.
Sailing With Style is full of new content that you won’t find in the American Sailing Journal–and it’s delivered straight to your inbox. This month’s issue kicked things off with how to book a great bareboat charter, an introduction to galley-friendly “container foods” (no dishes required!), and “The Cockpit Lounge,” an invitation to discover ASA on social media.
We’re exited to continue to develop the newsletter’s features, and over the coming months as the newsletter gets rolling, we’ll be introducing a number of cool perks and links. Future issues will contain nautical trivia and humor, opportunities to “ask an expert”, and of course as a lifestyle publication, we’re compelled to include some yacht fashion dos and don’ts (all in good fun, of course).
One of the most exciting new features will be a Member Promo Deals Map, which collects all the promotions offered by ASA schools on a continuously updated map. You can peruse current discounts on classes in your area, or look for a deal on a “destination class” in another part of the country. This visual, geographic search tool will make it easy to find great deals on ASA schools and classes near you–and it provides a one-stop site to browse numerous sailing schools’ promotions.
Lastly, I believe all good newsletters begin with a killer photo–and we want Sailing With Style to feature your boats! We are currently collecting photo submissions for the first ASA Photo of the Month, so email your best shot to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I’ll be posting an album of each month’s submissions on our Facebook page too, but the winner will be featured in the newsletter that goes out to over 20,000 sailors. Photos will be judged based on how well they capture the feel of “sailing lifestyle” …and I’m leaving that open to your interpretation!
So email me your photos: email@example.com
And go here to sign up for Sailing With Style. We hope you enjoy it!
