TRIP PLANNING APPROACHING PORT
Imagine you are planning a 2 week trip around the
You can plan this by looking at the Pilot Guide for
the area and going to the website of each of the ports
in the area (that have websites) to get a feel for the
places you would like to see etc.
With Twoater you can access all of this information
from one place and get real time up to the minute
information from other Twoaters, communicate with
the port directly and local businesses.
Once you have an idea which areas you are planning
to moor/drop anchor/ tie up etc. you can easily see
what is happening, over time, by creating ‘views’ on
these areas, which are constantly updated with the
latest Twoats in that area.
Twoater gives you the ability to create
‘views/filters’ on what is happening in the areas you
are interested in sailing.
These views always show the latest Twoats for that
area. To refresh the list just drag the list down with
a finger and then let go.
So for example, you could have 1 view showing all
Twoats around the Old Port of Cannes, a 2nd
the port of Antibes, etc. up to a maximum of 9
You can quickly scan across these views by swiping
your screen left and right, with a finger.
You should be able to Twoat directly with Ports and
Businesses in the local area, that are part of the Twoater
community, to reserve a berth, book a restaurant etc.
Find, and get in touch with all, the suppliers you
need to so that as you hit port you can hand over the
keys and head off for lunch at the restaurant you
reserved, and which was highly recommended by
Review all Twoats put out by the Port eg. a #navaid
may be misfunctioning, get a berth reserved, etc.
Get latest gossip on bars, restaurants, showers, etc.
REACH OUT FOR ADVICE
Find Twoaters with similar boats and ask them for
advice on any sticky problems you can’t resolve but
don’t warrant hiring an expensive expert.
Use the SOS/PAN-PAN button to send out a generic
Twoat,toup to 50Twoaters within a 50 mile radius
(approx.), who will receive a beep notification to
their phones alerting them to the issue. This includes
Ports but excludes Businesses.
