Sailing (Float) Plan

Joann Mead - July 9, 2020

As we all know, on the water anyone can run into trouble when they least expect it. In fact, on average over 400 water-related deaths occur annually in Canada and the US while boating. The Sailing Plan™ small vessel safety app is a fast and easy-to-use tool for creating, filing and sharing sailing plans before heading out on the water. It is designed to save lives through timely alerts. Available for both iOS and Android, it was developed in partnership with Public Safety Canada and will work anywhere in the world. It makes the completion and sharing of float plans easier and faster for boat captains, and provides data only when needed, to search and rescue professionals. To learn more go to www.sailingplan.ca and click on "How it Works" which outlines the simple steps to setup an account, create a sailing plan, and what happens when a vessel doesn’t return on time.  Click here to see a copy of the Sailing Plan Summary which is what an emergency contact will receive and can forward on to Emergency Responders if necessary if a boater is overdue.  The app is free to download and then $.99/year after that.
