US Sailing and Waterway Guide Announce Partnership
Waterway Guide Media and US Sailing are pleased to announce a partnership that provides benefits to members and constituents of both organizations. Students who take US Sailing’s Basic Cruising course at any accredited Keelboat School will be auto-enrolled into Waterway Guide’s cruising club, which provides discounts off fuel and dockage at participating marinas. They also will be signed up for Waterway Guide’s weekly newsletter that offers cruising topics, safety tips, navigational alerts, event notifications and more. US Sailing members will also be provided with the added benefit of a 25% discount for all Waterway Guide publications.
“We’re really excited about what this partnership will offer for US Sailing members,” said Stu Gilfillen, Training Director of US Sailing. “US Sailing is constantly seeking new ways to support those sailors interested in cruising, and we believe that this partnership fits in line with our goals. From the Guides to the newsletter, US Sailing members will greatly benefit from knowledge and information provided by the Waterway Guide.”
Graham Jones, Business Development Manager for Waterway Guide, said “We are excited about this partnership because it introduces boaters to the importance of safety and training before they head out on the water. As new boaters become involved, and want to learn, it is important that they have easy access to information in order to stay informed. This partnership provides benefits to boaters who are in the beginning stages of their education. We are pleased to be a part of that process and wish them smooth sailing.”
