ASA GoSailing (Crew Finder) App
In order to help skippers find crew and crew find skippers, CPYC will be utilizing the American Sailing Association (ASA) GoSailing App.
- GoSailing is a free (non commercial) mobile app developed by sailors and promoted by ASA
- It allows anyone to create a sailing event/trip, invite others to join them, and easily manage crew communication
- The app is very easy to use, but if you prefer the website, you have the same functionality there
The more of us that use the App, the easier it is to find crew and boats!!!
- Search “Go Sailing” in AppStore or Google Play on your phone
OR click this link https://gosailingapp.com
- Create your profile, add a picture, and add "CPYC" to Clubs in your profile
See the following presentation and GoSailing website for more details: CPYC Crew Finder GoSailing App Overview.pdf
Few Tips on GoSailing App Profile Settings:
- Create Display Name with "@CPYC" at the end so that other members can easily identify you (e.g. Joe Smith @CPYC).
This is the name displayed to other App users.
- Set your Home Area to 25 miles from Darien CT to filter out NYC events/boats which may clutter your lists.
- Add "CPYC" to Clubs at the bottom of your profile
- Here are some other sample setting options we found useful to filter out less relevant communications
