Go Sailing, a social networking app that connects people interested in sharing the experience of sailing, announced that it has reached 20,000 users.
Created for skippers needing crew and sailors wanting to sail, creators of the app said downloads increased by 10,000 since May 2017, four months after it was released nationally for both iOS and Android in early January 2017.
“Twenty thousand users is a significant milestone for us since we’ve taken what was a success in a local market — the San Francisco Bay area — and are well on our way to making it the go-to app for the recreational sailing community,” said Charlie Nobles, executive director of the American Sailing Association, in a statement.
“The Go Sailing app makes it easy for everyone, from experienced sailors to those with little or no boating experience, to get out on a sailboat,” Nobles said. “We believe it could be a game changer in the sailing industry.”
Go Sailing is a free, location-based social networking app that makes sailing accessible to everyone from novices to salty dogs, and helps private skippers, yacht clubs, sailing clubs, sailing schools and others easily find crew.
It requires no purchase or membership fees.
