Signing up for sailing instruction gets easierOct 30, 2007
- The Internet comes to sailing instruction. Fair Wind Sailing School claims to be one of the first sailing schools that allow you to make your reservations online. Let’s just hope sailing schools don’t start allowing you to take the course online without ever getting into a boat!
To date, few sailing schools have been able to offer online reservation systems due to data security and operational complexity issues. By utilizing PayPal's processing, Fair Wind's system avoids both of these issues. The system provides automated links from Fair Wind's sailing schedules to PayPal's payment system allowing for fast and easy reservations. In addition, since payments are processed by PayPal, no credit card or bank information from online reservations is stored at Fair Wind. "We have worked hard to develop a secure, effective and easy system to use and we hope are customers love it," said Bello. Fair Wind's intent is to continue to expand the system and enhance the user experience.
