Berth booking system: The Waypoint

Summer sailing made easy with online booking system 'The Waypoint'

If you’re hoping to set sail on one of the UK’s waterways this summer, you need look no further than new online berth vacancy management website The Waypoint, which features the latest berth vacancies from over 14 marinas across the UK.

The Waypoint (www.thewaypoint.com) is a web-based berth vacancy booking service which helps you to locate empty berths in their preferred marinas and book and pay for them online, 24 hours a day.

You can log into The Waypoint and immediately search and book a berth at over 14 displayed marinas with just a click of a button.  The Waypoint is totally free to use and is set to make booking a berth a breeze this summer.

Thanks to the variety of marinas now featuring on The Waypoint, the website can now offer berth vacancies in Nottingham, Hull, Kent, Surrey, Southampton, Poole, Plymouth, East London, Somerset, Hamble and even Lanzarote!

Charles Bacon, co-founder of The Waypoint is a keen sailor himself and created the service after experiencing first hand the difficulties of finding available visitor berths.

 “In my experience as a sailor, visitor berths at marinas are few and far between and often these are full. Usually this means that even if there is space available elsewhere in the marina, perhaps in a private berth, you’ll still be turned away. What The Waypoint allows marinas and berth owners to do is sub-let their private moorings when they aren’t in use, thereby increasing the availability at marinas for visiting sailors. The system is so simple to use and is updated automatically. With the warm weather on its way, it’s the perfect solution for anyone wanting to book and plan a sailing holiday with minimum fuss”, says Charles.
