PlainSailing.com have announced a major new partnership with cutting edge French sail-tech company Navily ahead of the 2022 sailing season!
UK-based PlainSailing.com have launched a partnership with Navily (Navily.com) – the World’s most innovative cruising guide – to help their clients make the most of their time on holiday by finding the nicest bays to play in, accessing the latest on-the-spot weather, planning a route, and helping them to choose the best and safest anchorages to overnight in.
Navily’s free service offers detailed maps of bays, anchorages, and marinas in the area – which are then coupled with approved reviews, photos and ratings from some of their dedicated 500,000+ sailors, and with data about the type of seabed and other services on offer nearby.
It is their premium service (which PlainSailing.com customers will get for free as part of their booking) where their cutting edge technology gets exciting, and can make a sailing holiday even more plain sailing: including using the latest weather data to say how well protected each anchorage will be for the night; enabling the quick and simple plotting of routes and distances; and it can even be used to book a berth in a marina for the night (at a growing number of marinas).
This can all be done from a Navily Premium account on your smartphone app, tablet, or laptop – at home in preparation for a sailing trip, or even when out on the water.
Tommy Tognarelli, co-founder of PlainSailing.com, said: “We’re so proud to work with the wonderful team at Navily and it’s fantastic to offer our customers new ways to make the most of their holiday – their latest innovative cruising-guide technology makes planning a route, finding a genuinely safe place to stay, or booking into a marina even easier and hassle-free.
“This technology is a great step forwards for sailors. It means that customers can spend more time relaxing, playing and having fun, and I’m sure our customers will be thrilled to have access to this cutting-edge tech included free as part of their booking”.
Edouard Fiess, CEO of Navily said: “Like our partners at PlainSailing.com, we are focussed on making yachting ever easier and more enjoyable. PlainSailing.com are known for their exceptional customer service, and we’re looking forwards to sharing all our latest innovations with their sailors. We’re also hoping that their reviews, photos and ratings can help us to keep the information in our cruising guide as up-to-date and accurate as possible.”
