Giethoorn sailing app

Sailing through Giethoorn is done annually by about 800,000 people. The largest group does this in 1 of the rental boats of Giethoorn. This group of people receives a sailing chart before departure. Yellow, red, and green routes are indicated on it. These routes correspond to colored poles along the route. A common complaint; it is not so easy to sail flawlessly with a sailing chart. Now we have a solution for this: the first sailing app of Giethoorn with the most used sailing routes of our village. Meanwhile, 4 boat rental companies from Giethoorn use our sailing app. Hopefully more will follow.
