Sailing is not only about power, but as well as doing the right thing. In the Netherlands, there is a volunteer rescue organisation for the Dutch lakes, rivers and coastal area. Each year they are called into action about 1500 times.
Considering they work on a 100% voluntary basis and receive no government funding, this is a significant achievement.
The reason they site for making an app, is that the knowledge of people on the water is decreasing. More and more people rent a boat without lacking the skills and experience. The app the KNRM made, helps new and experienced sailors to prepare and enjoy their day trip or their holiday on the water.
