    Sailing Project

    Hi All

    I am doing a sports marketing project for college on sailing, this project requires a bit of research so I would be grateful to anyone who could take a few seconds out just to fill in this quick survey.

    1. In your opinion does sailing appeal to certain personality types?

    2. What factors if any appeal to you about the sport?

    3. What factors would prevent you from partaking in sailing?

    4. Do you think the promotional material of the sport is effective?

    Thanks.

    2. Posh birds float some people's boat

    3. No boat. Seasickness

    4. The only publicity I've ever noticed is the big deal made out of that race to Galway. Bit on the news about next year's on friday (going from Alicante is it?)

    1) Posh people who wear Dubarry shoes.
    2) No real reason.
    3) The cost, and eh, no boat...
    4) Like has been mentioned, only time I've seen promotional stuff has been for the Galway boat race and then there was one in Barcelona a few weeks back.

    Yes posh people who live by the sea and Pirates

    When the sail is being rescued by helicoptor because the boat is wrecked.

    3. What factors would prevent you from partaking in sailing?

    Money, no boat, sea sickness.

    4. Do you think the promotional material of the sport is effective?

    I've seen a bit on Eurosport and the UK news when some Brit makes a world record attempt, besides that I don't there is any real promotion to be honest.
