Find, Promote, Engage & Share

Whether you've crossed an ocean or just keen to get out for a social twilight race, there is currently nothing easy about engaging with the sport of sailing.

You can't maintain a single, true profile of you, you can't promote your skills & expectations and it's made overly difficult to move between boats and clubs, let alone find a ride when interstate or overseas.

We know you're more than a name and number on a blackboard, so we're going to help you share it.

Finally you're in control, Manage your Profile, Find Events & Boats, Register your Interest and Engage, Share and Enjoy with everyone.
