2. 🗺 NEW: GPX Import

It's now even easier to log every mile to your SailTies profile, by importing GPX files recorded on hardware (e.g. chart plotters), wearables or other apps (such as Navionics).

3. 🏆 2022 Highlights

It's not often we pause to look backwards, but the end of the year is a great time for reflection on some proud moments. Thank you for making these possible:

🚀 iOS and Android apps launched
🌍 100,000 NM logged by sailors worldwide
📆 Non-stop voyages enter multiple weeks, including Fiji to New Zealand & ARC Atlantic Crossing

4. ⛵️ Voyages from the Community

November and December have seen activity in the Southern Hemisphere, Canaries and Caribbean really increase, which is very exciting for an app built by two British sailors! Thank you ❤️

A few of our recent favourites:
