StayBillety Launches with Sail Canada

CAMBRIDGE, ON (APRIL 21, 2016) – StayBillety and Sail Canada are pleased to announce their affiliation, effective today.  The agreement officially links Canada’s national sailing organization with the new online accommodation service, and will benefit sailors and member organizations across the country.

Regatta organizers will use the service to find housing for their participants.  Visiting sailors will search for properties supporting their sport, and save money on accommodation.  Local hosts benefit financially. And sailors traveling for business or pleasure can meet in a new way.

 “StayBillety will provide a helpful service for our members and their communities,” said Paddy Boyd, Executive Director of Sail Canada. “The sport, our travelling officials, volunteers, and athletes, along with our championship hosts will all benefit from this partnership.”

“I’ve been a sailor, both recreationally and competitively, for over 30 years.  I understand what event organizers and racing sailors need to simplify their accommodations needs.  I’m pleased Sail Canada is launching with us to serve the sport and build community,” said Barbara Jones, CEO/Founder of StayBillety.

StayBillety’s online service applied to regattas will ease the challenge of finding affordable housing for traveling Officials, Volunteers and Athletes, while at the same time servicing our clubs and event hosts by remove the need to manage billeting for their events. 

Sail Canada and StayBillety will soon provide member clubs and regatta organizers with information on how to include the site as an accommodation option for their regatta participants.
