BRISTOL, R.I. (April 15, 2021) – US Sailing, the National Governing Body of the sport, and SailFlow, an industry leader in sailing weather forecasting, have agreed on a new partnership that designates SailFlow as an Official Partner of US Sailing. SailFlow will deliver value to US Sailing constituents and volunteers across the sport and around the country.
Through this new partnership, SailFlow will offer those who are teaching the sport and helping run races in communities around the country with complimentary subscriptions to the SailFlow PRO plan service. As part of the multi-year partnership with SailFlow, US Sailing certified Master Instructor Trainers and Siebel Sailors Program Coaches will receive the complimentary PRO plan subscription in 2021.
In 2022, US Sailing certified Smallboat Instructor Trainers will be included to the group receiving the complimentary subscription, and in 2023, US Sailing certified Race Officials will also receive special access.
The PRO plan features exclusive access to PRO Weather Stations and Forecasts, and all benefits from the SailFlow PLUS plan.
All US Sailing members will continue to enjoy the existing SailFlow Member Benefit and receive special pricing, including 30% off the Plus and PRO plan memberships.
“We are excited to embark on this new partnership with SailFlow,” said Josh Toso, Marketing Director of US Sailing. “Through this partnership, SailFlow is supporting our members and essential volunteers who drive the sport. We believe in their weather forecasting services for sailors and we appreciate their commitment to sailing.”
SailFlow looks ahead to 2022 for the National Sailing Programs Symposium (NSPS) and High-Performance Symposium (formerly the Coaching Symposium), where they will serve as a sponsor for these two signature US Sailing events.
“At SailFlow, we strive to provide our members with simply the highest-quality real-time wind and forecast data available anywhere,” said George Haye, Product Manager of SailFlow. “It is our honor to partner with US Sailing, who provide that same level of commitment and quality to their members, literally making the world a better place for pursuing the passion of sailing.
