On Monday, July 21 we will be completely switching over to the new reefable Badger Sloop sails and making some changes to the rigging and de-rigging procedures for the fleet. At this time, you will need to watch a short video that will describe the changes and take an associated quiz before you will be able to check out a Badger Sloop. Starting on Monday, you will be able to access the video and quiz through the Sailing Club website and your rating will be automatically reinstated upon completion of the quiz. I apologize for any inconvenience this may cause; this was preferable to attempting to get over 500 members through re-certification lessons.
We are happy to announce the release of the new Hoofer Sailing Club App! The app which was developed by Max Rahder and Towneley Pearson is designed to provide quick and easy access to the following information regarding club operations:
- Wind Direction
- Wind Speed
- Water Temperature
- Current Flag
- Sunset Time
- Boathouse Hours

- Additional features coming soon!
The webapp and can be easily found and installed to you phone by doing the following:
1.)Go to webapp.hoofersailing.org to access the application
2.)Hit your settings button(Location and appearance vary by phone)
3.)Select Add to Home Screen
The app is currently in a Beta stage. This means that we are still working on the app to make improvements and increase the amount of data our members have access to. What this means is that we want your input: Let us know what you think of the app, would you add any additional features? Did you encounter any problems when using it? We want to hear from you.
We hope you enjoy the new app!
