Sail magazine recently redesigned its website.

Along with improved site navigation and expanded multimedia, the site integrates content from all Sail media platforms — print, digital, and social media. With the site redesign, Sail is also debuting a new charter video series called Charter Channel and presented by the British Virgin Islands Tourism Board.

“With the redesign of sailmagazine.com, we're expanding Sail’s online platform,” publisher Josh Adams said in a statement. “More video and multimedia, easier site navigation, expanded community interaction and searchable content are all features designed to improve the user and advertiser experience.”

Sail’s Charter Channel will feature 12 video segments over six months, with one launching every two weeks. Each segment is hosted by associate editor Meredith Laitos and set in the British Virgin Islands at the bases of leading charter companies.
