Website update, mobile app and social media

03 Apr 2018 2:08 PM | Matthew Burpee (Administrator)

With all the recent security issues and timeline changes in Facebook and the coming neighbourhood along Cherry Street there exists an renewed opportunity to improve our community website.

Quick changes

1) A mobile app is available (Android coming). You can: register for events and pay event fees from your phone, update your member personal profile, and find fellow sailors in the member directory.



2) Design adjustmentsThe third column on the home page was removed to allow for a larger opening photo that conveys the enjoyment of racing with other sailors in natural and urban beauty. The site menu was shortened with links to unused content removed for now. Fonts are larger for easier reading. More design work will be done during the year to make the site mobile friendly. 



3) YouTube, Instagram & Twitter accounts have begun for members and fans who prefer to hang out in those party lines. Remember to use the hashtag #sailwaterrats and check-in to the location when posting so we all can connect. 



Help wanted. Please share any stories, updates, photos etc. especially sailing tips, info about annual events, fellow member profiles, and the history of the club and area. Contact Matthew Burpee.


Check out past versions of our website by adding waterrats.ca on the Internet Archive Wayback Machine. A few screenshots are below.
