EZ Waves Partners With US Sailing to Offer Streamlined Booking Process for Sailing Schools

CHARLESTON, SC--(Marketwired - Aug 24, 2016) - EZ Waves, the first real-time, online charter booking service for sailing, fishing, kayaking and all other water-based activities, announces today its partnership with the US Sailing Association. Through this partnership, EZ Waves' one-of-a-kind software provides scheduling and payment resources for the organization's national network of more than 75 accredited keelboat schools.

"With boating season just now starting up in parts of the US, this partnership assists US Sailing's network of schools to better serve the influx of travelers, locals and families signing up for sailing classes this season," said Vickie Waller, founder of EZ Waves. "My passion for sailing sparked the idea for EZ Waves, so I'm extremely proud to offer the service to further facilitate the growth and sport of sailing."

US Sailing schools using the EZ Waves system have its courses listed on www.sailingcertification.com and each course is accompanied by a "book now" button where guests are presented with an EZ Waves scheduler. From there, EZ Waves handles real-time course scheduling, online payment processing and website management for the association. This process streamlines scheduling and makes it more convenient for first-time guests to book sailing lessons.

"Part of US Sailing's vision is to introduce as many people as possible to the sport of sailing. We see EZ Waves' software as a phenomenal resource for our network of schools to help get more people on the water," said Stu Gilfillen, US Sailing's training director. "EZ Waves' user-friendly platform was a definite draw for us, and dramatically simplifies the process for people to get online and find a sailing course that's the best fit for them."

With nearly 500 captains available internationally, EZ Waves is the only program that streamlines the maritime booking process, providing live scheduling that allows guests to book online directly on captains' schedules and be on the water in as little as three hours. Once a trip is finalized, captains are immediately notified in real-time through the EZ Waves Companion app. Available through the Apple Store and Google Play, the mobile app allows captains to create a public profile, manage their schedules, see what trips are booked for a given day, start and end trips, and add price adjustments and tips at any time.
