More Kudos for Sailing Site MagazineSAN DIEGO, Calif. (Feb. 29, 1996) -- The Sailing Site has been named to the Iway 500, a list of the best 500 Web sites in the world as ranked by Iway magazine.
"This is just further confirmation that we're on the right track," said Larry Edwards, publisher and editor of The Sailing Site. "The nicest thing about this award, as with our earlier one, is that it was unsolicited and completely unexpected, which makes it all the more meaningful."
This is the second award in as many months for the on-line sailing magazine. In January, The Sailing Site was named as one of the Best 1001 Web sites by PC Computing magazine.
Edwards, who spearheaded the development and production of America's Cup On Line last year, founded the sailing magazine in the wake of the 1995 America's Cup.
The Iway staff rated each site for seven criteria: Serves Intended Purpose, Depth of Content, Accuracy, Accessibility, Design/Style, Navigation, and Performance.
"Finding the best sites in a given category can be a tedious chore," said Michael Nadeau, editor of Iway, which is published by Connell Communications Inc. in Peterborough, New Hampshire. "What you need is a list of the best sites for each major category. The I-way 500 is such a list, ranking the 25 best sites in each of 20 categories."
The Sailing Site is ranked as one of the top 25 Web sites the Sports & Recreation category. The listing appears in a special issue of Iway, which hit the newsstands Feb. 26. The list is also published on line.
The Sailing Site provides daily updates on racing, cruising, legal issues, maritime heritage and the marine industry as it pertains to sailing.
