We have been working with the Craft&Crew guys in setting up their SailConnect software. It is a phone based app for Android and Apple that allows clubs to communicate more effectively with its members and sailors about upcoming events and attendance and in the future for race management.
What does it do for you?
For sailor it gives you easy access to Clubs events and allows you to see how many other people are attending; not just for you home club but for all affiliated clubs. Additionally you are able to enter all your details and qualifications and promote yourself to boat owners looking for crews.
Why do we want it?
The software is in its early stages of the roll out and Clubs are now becoming aware of it and its capabilities. We have our 2017/18 calendar loaded and those of a few of the other Clubs’ events that we support. That information is only a tap away on your screen.
The app brings clubs closer to their members though a really simple quick communication interface. As the app is further developed it will allow more and more transactions to take place on line including entries and payment.
In addition you can indicate your intention to attend events. We would like to think as people take up the convenience of the app that they would indicate every week there intentions to participate; Juniors, LTS and Senior sailors.
What does it cost ? – How do I get it?
The app is FREE and is guaranteed to stay that way for sailors / crew. It is available in Google Store or on iTunes. It takes a minute to download and a maximum to enter all your details; everything from your AS number to your courses and qualifications
