Nautinet

Nautinet is a new website providing a comprehensive central platform to make crew organisation and communication efficient and easy. It provides a well-organised and user-friendly place to keep all of the data involved in organising racing events as well as a wealth of really smart features and functionality.

 

Just a year since the website’s live launch, there are now some of the most competitive racing boats in the world using the software including J-Class ‘Velsheda’, RP100 ‘Wild Oats XI’, MiniMaxis ‘Caol Ila R’ and ‘Robertissima’, and TP52s ‘Spookie’ and ‘Alegre’. There have also been a number of smaller boats signing up.

 

How It All Works

 

Nautinet is basically a great little piece of online software where every member of a sailing team has an individual log-in to access boat and crew data as well as use all the features and functionality.

 

Once logged in, either you or an account administrator (such as a captain, owner or manager) can add your personal details such as uniform sizes, food allergies, mobile number, etc.

 

Hereafter, your personal details can be easily shared with any boat that you accept an invitation from and access almost all of the data, dependent privileges set by an account administrator or the captain.

 

Each time an event is added to a boat’s calendar, one can opt to invite any amount of crew from a list of all the current crew. All selected crew will then automatically receive an email notification announcing that they have been invited to an event and enquiring if they would like to attend or not. Should a crew member select “Yes” to attending, then his/her name will automatically appear on all of the smart lists and effect other features and functionality throughout the site.

 

An example of a smart list is the ‘Next of Kin List’. This is a list that pulls all of the next-of-kin data from all of your crew’s accounts and places it on one neat table. You can choose to show all of your crew or only crew attending certain events. As with any page on Nautinet, this table is available to download, print or share via email at the click of a button

 

One example of a function is the ‘Smart-Grouped SMS Messaging’ which allows you to write one message on-screen and then click “Send to All Crew” or “Send to All Crew Attending Maxi Worlds”. Perfect for informing all the crew of last minute changes at an event when the crew are geographically scattered about the place!

 

One example of a feature is the ‘Attendance Overview’ page. This shows a list of all of the crew and all of the events and shows whether or not the individual crew members are ‘Attending’, ‘Not Attending’, ‘Awaiting Response’ or ‘Not Invited’. It will also summarise below how many crew are attending, not attending, awaiting response or not invited and, of those attending, how many crew are race crew, shore/permanent crew, owner/guest or non-crew.

 

“Nautinet has proved a great tool for both the TP52 and the Etchells teams. We found it easy to learn, easy to use, and a great bespoke solution to the modern demands of professional sailing,” says Steve Benjamin, 2015 Rolex Yachtsman of the Year and owner of TP52 ‘Spookie‘, Carkeek40 and Etchells.

 

All crew profiles are free but each boat pays an annual subscription of which there are four different types to choose from depending on which profile applies best to the boat and crew. Different deals can also be easily negotiated.

Benefits for Captains, Management & Owners

  • A heavily reduced number of emails
  • Massive savings in administration time and labour, which in turn allows management to focus on other more important things that can often save costs for the program
  • Share and work on the same data simultaneously to someone else who might be in another country (not possible with Excel or Dropbox)

 

 

Benefits for Crew

  • Readily available information (event dates, flight details, etc)
  • One-time data entry – Once your personal details are in the Nautinet database, simply join other boats on Nautinet to share that data and put a stop to continuously providing the same personal data to multiple boats.)
  • Overlay calendars – See all of the events of all the boats that you race with on one calendar. (Highlights potential clashed or tight logistics between events)
