New Sailing World look hits newsstands


Bonnier Corp.'s Sailing World will sport a new look with its April 2010 issue, which hits newsstands today.

"With all the changes in our sport over the past several years, the Sailing World of yesterday just didn't seem to sync with what sailing is today," said Sailing World editor Dave Reed. "The magazine now has an entirely different appearance, but at its core, maintains what our readers have come to expect with each issue, while adding some surprises."

In its redesign, Sailing World has incorporated a new logo and cover design. The publication will bolster its instructional content with more From the Experts columns; add a "soapbox" column from pro sailor Ken Read; and feature more devices to connect Sailing World readers with its ever-expanding online content.

Sailing World will also be launching a new Web site in April to coincide with its redesign.
