Why is a sailing plan so important?
Transport Canada recommends boaters prepare a sailing plan – before leaving home port – and leave a copy with a responsible person on shore. These plans help guide search and rescue teams in the event of an overdue trip.
With Sailing PlanTM – the small vessel safety app, the process is entirely automated at the server – not at the app or device level.
No one forgets to check in with the captain. No one assumes the captain is safe. No one is left unsearched for.
Benefits of having a sailing plan
Escalations are cloud-based, not app based. So the captain doesn’t need to actively ask for help or have a network connection. The system escalates automatically.
A sailing plan can be done in seconds. No more faxing or posting yellow sticky notes!
