Welcome to Sailor Friend
A website and database where worldwide sailors can stay in touch, exchange crucial information, and get easy access to our mobile sailing apps.
Alone we are drops, together an ocean!
Explore our Database and Mobile Apps now!
We are now beginning so the database has limited information at the moment however, with your help we will shortly have a very useful portal. It’s simple, Go to “Menu >share your knowledge”, enter whatever info you wish, hit GO and you’re done!!
TO will let you get the best from your boat whether you are in a race or in a passage. You simply enter your boat’s polar coordinates then, while sailing, you enter bearing, strength, and direction of the wind and TO will immediately calculate your best tack. Between a shorter, and slow tight tack, and a longer, and fast wide tack, it will be easily calculated by TO, the fastest way to reach your target, the fastest tack.
This App saves your passage coordinates, allows you retrace the track again with clear, and easy to view graphics, even in poor or no visibility, and without the use of expensive charts plotters. You can also share the passage file by email or Bluetooth with your friends who may wish to make the same difficult passage. All this and more from smart phone or tablet!
SF Cruiser (Under Development)
This app is similar to a cruising app with generic chart for monitoring your sailing progress i.e speed, course, bearing to Way Point etc. A key feature of SF Cruiser is its ability to update and memorize email addresses and send distress messages at the touch of a button.
MP (Under Development)
A HUGE surprise for you. MP will be a very significant revolution and innovation in the sailing world. It will give to your sail boat the features of the maxiYachts!
Passage Planner (Under Development)
This app, using the Pilot Charts (two centuries of weather statistics and accumulated information) is a must have if you wish to choose the right time and best sailing strategy for a medium/long passage. PP will give you the expected speed and weather conditions per each leg of the full passage and much more..
