The American Sailing Association said that Go Sailing, the group’s free social-media app, was updated with new capabilities.
Part of the update will include trip-list filters for an enhanced browsing experience and the ability to schedule sailing-related events worldwide.
The ASA presents Go Sailing to the worldwide sailing community as a public service. The ASA said the sailing communities’ acceptance of the app has demanded that the Go Sailing app expand its capabilities and availability to connect the entire sailing world.
Starting immediately, the Go Sailing app will be available to download on iPhones and Androids in 109 countries and on the Internet (www.gosailingapp.com) around the world.
Enhanced by its support from the ASA’s network of more than 330 affiliated sailing schools worldwide, the app has access to millions of active sailors looking for like-minded people to go sailing.
“Wherever you’re looking for crew on the Seven Seas, Go Sailing is there,” Go Sailing project manager Tim Ridderbusch said in a statement. “Anywhere you get cell reception, from the North Atlantic to the South Pacific, from Cape Horn to the Cape of Good Hope, Go Sailing is available to help you find crew.”
