I am excited to announce an industry-first partnership between Deckee and Boatbook SailingLog, the world’s first automatic logbook app, to bring crowdsourced location reviews to sailors right when they need them most.
Thousands of sailors all around Australia can now automatically track their sailing journeys and access the collective cruising knowledge of the sailing community in the palm of their hand, thanks to an innovative new integration that has launched today.
More than 100,000 skippers worldwide have already downloaded the free Boatbook SailingLog app, which automatically recognises the start and end of your sail and records your routes and sailing data for you.
When you are using the Boatbook app, tapping on the Deckee logos that feature on the map will open up a collection of reviews and advice about that waterway, contributed by members of the Deckee community.
Sailors can also easily share their own location and anchorage reviews to Deckee directly from the Boatbook app.
For those wondering about battery consumption and mobile reception issues at sea, Boatbook SailingLog will track your sail even when you switch to aeroplane mode. This is especially important for those sailing offshore.
Here at Deckee we believe collaboration between marine startups will be critical to the growth and success of our industry for years to come. Partnerships like this one will also be critical to meet the needs of the boating community as technology continues to evolve and improve.
Download the free Boatbook SailingLog app today to take advantage of the new Deckee integration the next time you’re out on the water.
