What is Windshare?
Windshare allows members to create shared charters to save money and meet other Windworks members. When you create a Windshare reservation, other members can join in. The cost is split amongst all the members who join the sailing. This lets you get out on the water with a lower cost.
How do I create a Windshare reservation?
When reserving a boat within the app (available by viewing the details of a boat), simply select the Windshare option. You can then specify the minimum and a maximum number of participants as well as enter a description for others to read.
How do I see available Windshares or join one?
Windshare reservations are shown on the Windshare tab within the app. If you are interested in a sailing, tap the sailing to get details or join the sailing.
Who can create a Windshare reservation?
Any member who is certified to charter a Windworks boat can create a Windshare reservation. The same rules apply as for any charter. That is: Vessels 25′ and under require a Basic Keelboat certification at the minimum. All vessels over 25′ require a Basic Cruising certification for day sailing, and Bareboat Cruising certification if chartering for more than one day.
Who can create join a Windshare reservation?
Any member can join a Windshare sailing. Be sure to check the description for any details on the sailing.
I am participating in a Windshare sailing. How can I communicate with other members participating in the Windshare?

How is this related to the old Windshare program?
We see this as an improvement over the old email-based Windshare program. Over time, the old Windshare system will be phased out.
How do I modify or cancel a reservation?
Contact Windworks to modify or cancel a reservation. The Windworks cancellation policy applies.
