NEW Boating Apps

From weight loss to managing your grocery list, there is an app for just about everything! To be honest, I find some apps really useful.

Sail Canada and Discover Boating  recently launched great phone and iPad apps for boaters. Not only do these apps provide important boating information that is easy to access, search, book mark – but it’s always current.

Sail Canada, the national governing body for the sport of sailing launched the perfect app for  racers: Racing Rules of Sailing for 2017-2020 including Sail Canada’s prescriptions.

Available in both English and French, the app offers:

  • Quick and easy reference to the Rules, Definitions, Signals, Appendices and the Sail Canada Prescriptions
  • Bookmark capabilities for your most needed pages
  • Downloads including: Protest Forms, Course Diagrams & more

Sail Canada’s Racing Rules of Sailing can be downloaded from both the iTunes and Google Android Stores.

If you plan to be boating in Canada, take a moment to download the free Discover Boating Safety App. It has just about everything you’ll need to ensure a safe and fun time on the water, no matter where or how you go boating.

An interactive and easy to use source of information, it covers a range of regulations, guidelines and best practices to make ‘getting ready to go boating’ easier. What’s interesting is the app is accessible whether or not you have internet access.

Content is organized under 4 different categories:

  • Be Prepared! Easy-to-use interactive checklists to ensure everything you need is onboard before heading out on the water.
  • Plan Your Trip! Destination and weather information; equipment checklists and more.
  • Reference Guide! Useful boating tips from PFDs to visual references for navigation buoys.
  • Emergency! Basic emergency procedures and contact numbers (Search and Rescue, RCMP, most municipal marine police units) at your finger tips.

Download the Discover Boating Safety app is available for iPhones or Androids.

Boat safely everyone!
