TheBeachcats.com now available on My.Yahoo.com

Added by damonAdmin on Mar 28, 2004 - 11:16 PM

Yahoo.com chooses TheBeachcats.com as a source for sailing news.

Yahoo! recently introduced a new content feature to their My.Yahoo.com page that allows users to display RSS news feeds directly in their customized page. I was pleased to find that TheBeachcats.com is listed as a news source for keywords 'sailing' and 'catamaran'. This means that news, stories, announcements, and tips that you submit to TheBeachcats.com will get even wider readership than before. TheBeachcats.com was already syndicated by major news syndicators like Moreover, News Now (UK), and Syndic8.com so this will bring catamaran sailing news to even more people.

Of course, I would like it if everyone just used TheBeachcats.com as their home page, but this is the next best thing. You can display up to 10 headlines from this site directly in your My.Yahoo.com page. And don't forget that you can syndicate the headlines from TheBeachcats.com on your own website by following the directions at Web Syndication Instructions.

New Poll -- Do you use a wind indicator?

Added by damonAdmin on Jun 23, 2003 - 11:47 AM
I recently participated in a catamaran regatta where I managed to start both days of catamaran racing whithout my trusty Hobie Bridle Fly. (That's the red mylar one in the Hobie Catalog, part CM7703 $15.00) I found it much more difficult to determine my best tacking angles sailing both upwind and down. Do you use a bridle fly or wind indicator such as a Telo Cat on your catamaran? Please vote in the new poll at the right of this page.

If you are a catamaran sailor with thoughts on this issue, as always, you can comment by clicking on the "comments" link.

Free Web Hosting for beachcat sailors, clubs and fleets.

Added by damonAdmin on Apr 22, 2003 - 04:39 PM
A lot of catamaran sailing clubs, catamaran associations, Hobie Cat Fleets, and individual catamaran sailors would like to have a sailing website but don't have the budget to pay for hosting.

Since I feel that every catamaran sailing organization and individual catamaran sailor should be able to have a home on the web, I've decided to offer free web-hosting and email to any non-commercial website primarily devoted to catamaran sailing.

Poll results say more found TheBeachcats.com by links.

Added by damonAdmin on Mar 04, 2003 - 05:25 PM
The Poll that is titled "How did you find this site" revealed the fact that more people found TheBeachcats.com from links on other sites than other means. I was surprised by this, figuring that most folks would have come to the site from either the beachcats mailing list, or search engines.

A big thanks to all who have put a link to TheBeachcats.com on their website. The Catamaran Links Directory here at TheBeachcats.com makes it easy for you to add sites you feel would interest our members. Webmasters, please consider linking to TheBeachcats.com on your sailing related sites.

Catsail.com donates content to TheBeachcat.com

Added by Damon Linkous on Oct 28, 2002 - 11:46 AM
Bill Mattson, long-time publisher of the On The Wire Ezine for catamaran sailors at Catsail.com, has announced that he will no longer publish the magazine. He has generously donated all the archives and material from On The Wire to TheBeachcats.com.

I would like to formally thank Mr. Mattson for entrusting the results of years of hard work to TheBeachcats.com. I have added a link to a complete mirror of everything that was on Catsail.com to the main menu of this site. If you never had the pleasure of reading Bill's Ezine in the past, I suggest you take a look now.
