  1. Kevin Allman

    We use SailBot for our high school sailing team to run practice races. It is the perfect solution for us! Before SailBot the kids could never hear the whistle and my lungs were sore! SailBot is easy, loud, and convenient. I love that I can set up my own start sequences in the app in case I want to do something different to keep the kids on their toes.

    Thank you so much! I have been meaning to write you to let you know that we have loved the SailBot. We had a youth invitational for 94 sailors on July 7 that went off great with the dinghy sequence, and then another 2 day regatta with old turn of the century Wianno Seniors (about two dozen 25 foot sailboats with 4 crew) last weekend using the 5 min Rule 26 start. As an iPhone user myself, having the app as the controller is seamless.

    You have a great product you should be proud of. We’ll be sure to promote the device among our Southern Mass sailors and clubs.
