Updated: Jul 27
If you have been sailing with Coboaters for a while, this information will not surprise you: 40% of Coboaters members are women sailors.
Most of the women on Coboaters.com are crew members. You will find beginners, experienced crew members as well as some very experienced and passionate boat owners. they join the club to improve their sailing network, meet new friends and spend more time on the water.
This is very good news for all of us as it shows that women feel safe and that they can find a boat or a crew.
As you probably know, Coboaters.com is not a dating site, it is a sailing network where people meet and learn to know each other. Their goal is to sail together.
We do our best to select our members and encourage everyone to fill up their profile and to have their ID checked. Our goal is to connect confident boaters, men and women sailors alike. Create your FREE profile to join the community
So, why does it work?
1. On Coboaters, you meet enjoyable and nice people.
Coboaters is based on membership. It is free for now for 6 months but fees will apply at some point in the future. Those fees will be minimal and will allow our team to maintain a good level of service and keep the website running. It is also a good way to make sure our members are motivated and serious about boating.
When fees are required and profile details are needed, we are unlikely to see:
dreamers, who think they will sail, but never cast off;
the profiteers, who think that living on others' goodwill and money is good philosophy;
those who have "not so good" boats because they don't have the means to maintain them;
the web swindlers, who will not pay a membership fee try to swindle members when it is possible to do it for free via other sites.
2. Coboaters does everything possible to generate trust among its members.
We implemented several features:
Reviews between members after a boating event;
Profile certification and ID checked
The possibility to become a super Coboater. A super Coboater is someone who had welcomed a large number of crew and got only positive reviews. If you are a super Coboater you are likely to find the best crew!
There are a few best practices to follow if you want to sail often with other crew members:
Take time to find out about the people you are going to meet, their boats, and their sailing projects.
Coboaters is not a dating site. Do not be surprised if women contact men and ask for more details. People on this website want to spend time on the water and enjoy it.
Introduce yourself before meeting someone on a boat. It is common sense to make sure you will be with the right person. Chat online, talk over the phone.
To conclude, keep in mind that Coboaters is not only a crew finder website, It is a club where people meet and spend time on the water. It is a club where members describe their boats, and share their experiences and skills on the water. Women sailors are very welcome and we are very proud to see that so many of them are proactive.
I'm looking forward to being a part of this awesome community! CoBoaters fulfills an important need by uniquely providing a safe way for boaters to connect... I'm particularly impressed by Coboater's verification and detailed profile system that other platforms simply do not offer. Thank you Phil for creating this opportunity for people who love getting out on the water!
Behind the scenes, we monitor activities and do our best to make it safe and secure for everyone. We provide assistance and help. We want you to enjoy sailing and to build your boating network.
This is probably why this network is growing fast!
