GoSailing App Connects Sailors

Mark WolfHoover Sailing Club, Leadline, Leadline Club News

Are you looking for crew?  Would you like to try sailing on a different boat?  The free Go Sailing app enables skippers and crew to find each other with the tap of an icon.  Skippers post brief details about their planned sail including location, leisure/race, public/private/club, desired sailing skills, date and time.  Private sails only are seen by sailors that you invite.  Skippers may duplicate and modify sails for similar events.  Once posted, sailors may apply to join.  The skipper selects and easily communicates with potential or selected sailors. 

Sailors select notifications options for new events in their areas—the area may be very large such as Columbus sailors monitoring sailing opportunities on Lake Erie.  The app enables great opportunities for new sailors and students to get more experience!

The club may register with Go Sailing to enable advertising club only activities such as social events or seminars.  The club may also advertise sailing lessons through the app.  View the features of this free social networking app for sailors at https://gosailingapp.com/.

When I lived on East Coast without owning a sailboat, I often sailed through the app.  When traveling, I have used the app to find sailing opportunities or find crew for charters.  Recently, I have advertised for racing crew at Hoover Sailing Club, and I was surprised to receive several applications from very experienced sailors.  Of the over 20 sailors that I have met through the app, everyone has been a polite and enthusiastic sailor.  Many local sailors would greatly enjoy if Columbus skippers shared sailing opportunities through Go Sailing!
