Can Apps Save Your Life

The Best Apps for Sailing Could Save Your Life

Some people don’t like apps, but we believe that apps for sailing are here to stay. There are those that worry about security issues (like banking apps) or are trying to live off-grid and don’t want to be monitored by ‘Big Brother’. For the rest of us, good apps can improve our cruising experience and make life more comfortable at sea, they may even save a life.

And perhaps a few apps for sailing on our phones may mean throwing out that clunky old chart plotter…
