SAN FRANCISCO – By request from a number of our Dear Readers, today we are launching a new feature – The Daily Digest – with links to recent race results, upcoming events and notable news and views all in one post. Except on Tuesdays, when we are getting ready for our live "Tuesdays with TFE" netcast, we will post The Daily Digest as near as possible to midday Pacific Time when the majority of our Dear Readers are awake (1200 Pacfic / 1500 Eastern / 2100 Central Europe / 0800 New Zealand). Of course we will continue to post features from time to time, and breaking news as soon as we get it.
With The Daily Digest you will get just one email, cutting down on inbox clutter, and giving you timely news and in an abbreviated manner so you won't have to wade through a lot of unnecessary cut-and-paste verbiage.
Thanks for your amazing support of Sailing Illustrated. As always your comments and suggestions are more than welcome, via firstname.lastname@example.org.
