Boston, MA May 6, 2009 - Boston Interactive, a Boston web design and interactive marketing firm, proudly announces the launch of the newly redesigned Sailors for the Sea website (http:///). Sailors for the Sea is a nonprofit organization that educates and empowers the boating community to protect and restore our oceans and coastal waters.


Sailors for the Sea partnered with Boston Interactive to redesign their online presence in order to promote active involvement in ocean-related environmental awareness. "Our mission is to educate and empower the sailing and boating community to protect our oceans and coastal waters" said Executive Director Daniel Pingaro. The newly redesigned website activates, educates, and engages visitors to become involved with ocean conservation by providing original content and information about opportunities for stewardship. Their diverse portfolio of projects and programs encourage active involvement in ocean conservation. With striking imagery, interactive applications and video integration, is a fresh, compelling, and interactive new voice for ocean conservation. 


Within the site, users can explore ocean conservation by following the Around the Americas Sailing Expedition, watching clips of "A Sea Change", the new documentary focusing on the urgent ocean acidification crisis, engaging in Clean Regattas and other programs and even measuring their own carbon impact through a Carbon Wake Calculator. The website also accepts donations and membership requests.

"We were tasked with the challenge of increasing awareness of Sailors for the Sea, drawing visitors to the site and transferring visits into activated, connected members of the community by educating, engaging and inspiring sailors to get involved" said John Francis, President of Boston Interactive.  "The redesigned website will certainly help boost their reputable mission and provide several interactive avenues for advocacy and involvement."
