Lovesail Has A Facelift

Lovesail Has a New Facelift

Lovesail the dating and social networking site for sailing enthusiasts have had a facelift.  A new home page re-design just in time for the summer sailing season has been launched.

Says Erica Joyce, director of Lovesail, “We felt the home page was long overdue for an update, it needed to be fresh and modern.  We worked closely with Gavin at Flying Folders to achieve a more mature and sophisticated look which is not too cluttered but has all the essential information that a home page needs to contain.  I think you’ll agree it looks fantastic.”

The re-design does not stop at the home page either, once logged into their accounts members will notice a new colour scheme and slightly different layout.  “We are not just a dating site but a friendship and crew site too.  Some of our members have been with us finding friends and crew since the site was founded in 2004.  We didn’t want to change the internal layout too much as members have become familiar with the current structure.  Some links have moved and we have a few new features, but mostly the organisation remains the same”.

If you would like to take a look at the site, Registration is free and gives you the option to search the member profiles for either dating, friendship or crew categories.  If you want to communicate with the other members then a subscription to the Gold membership is necessary.  We hand check all the profiles that register to ensure that the members have a genuine interest in sailing.  This results in a database of members that are passionate about sailing and looking to meet others with a similar interest.

The Gold membership has several options, 1-month duration, 3 months, 6 months or our very popular unlimited.  The unlimited Gold options allow members to remain a Gold member for life, no additional payments for full access to the site for as long as they wish.  Many members choose this subscription because it means they can relax without any worry that their subscription will expire before they have found a sailing partner, friends or crew.

Love Sail or Lovesail?

Is it Love Sail or Lovesail?

Well, the gap can make quite a difference.  If you use Love Sail you will come up with 106,000,000 results.  Quite a lot to look through.  If you leave out the gap then it’s 79,000 results.  I’m pleased to say that we come top in the organic searches for both Love Sail and Lovesail.   And so we should because that’s what we are about, love and sailing.

What is Love Sail? is a global online dating and social networking site for boating enthusiasts.  Think but with yachts or sailboats.  All the members on Love Sail are passionate about sailing and want to meet others in the same boat (I’ll apologise for the puns now, you won’t believe just how many sailing expressions there are).  If you don’t like boats then this isn’t the site for you.

We have been established since 2004, a friendly site with a personal touch.  No stealth payments or catches.  Just a one-off fee to communicate with other members and you can stay on board for as long as you wish, no time limits or expiry dates.  All the profiles are hand checked to make sure the members do have a genuine interest in sailing and we are not affiliated to any other dating sites, so your details will only appear on our site.

Not quite sure if you are ready to date yet?  Lots of our members are looking for friendships and non-professional crew too, so why not dip your toe in the water first and look for friends to go sailing with.  We have members all over the world you can talk to so why not give it a try?

To join Love Sail then visit us at (no gap!).
