Everything You Need to Build Your Trusted Sailing Resume
Hybrid Blockchain

Sailing experience is public for everyone to see. Individual identities are kept anonymous until a user identifies themselves with their public key just as in popular blockchains such as Bitcoin and Ethereum.

Charter Companies

Charter companies participate in verifying logbook entries of their charter fleet, providing the highest level of trust for a transaction. Anyone may inspect any confirmed transaction of any user or charter company.

Certifications & Licenses

Certification and licensing authorities, such as ASA, participate in verifying student certifications and licenses, providing the highest level of trust in education and training programs offered by these institutions.

Easy to Share

As anyone in the world may access all confirmed transactions on Charter Rode, all of your sailing experience is implicitly shared once confirmed on the public blockchain. Use your Charter Rode Wallet to prove you own any transaction on Charter Rode.

Trusted Sailing Resume

Building your Trusted Sailing Resume is as easy as signing up for an account and start logging your sailing experience on Charter Rode. Ask crewmates, charter companies, schools, and license authorities to verify your experience with just one click.

Like you, we think tracking and sharing your sailing experience should be easy and secure.

Why Charter Rode?
Sailors are tired of fumbling with antiquated logbooks that no one trusts. This leads to insurance companies, charter companies, and other authorities not accepting or trusting their experience which makes a sailor’s logbook unusable or even irrelevant.
Charter Rode is a hybrid blockchain where sailors build a Trusted Sailing Resume that may be shared, verified, and trusted by anyone in the world. This allows sailors to spend more time on the water and less time hassling and arguing about their experience.
Charter Rode exists because when sailors can easily log, independently verify, and share their sailing experience, they have the freedom to weigh anchor and explore the world.

Example 1: You go out and sail for the afternoon and log 5 hours and 15 nm. You take along a buddy as crew who happens to already have a verified Charter Rode account. You get back to the dock, add a new logbook entry for your afternoon trip. You ask your buddy to verify the entry using the crewmate verification process. The total fee for your logbook entry would be 1 CRT.
Example 2: You and your family charter a beautiful 45′ catamaran in the Virgin Islands for 10 days. You have an amazing trip and enjoy those painkillers at anchor. One of the nights is a full moon and you go out for a night-time sail for four hours. All other sailing is done during daylight hours. When you get home, you log your trip as 10 days and one night. You select the Charter Rode verification option to verify your trip with the charter company. Your total fee for this entry would be 18 CRT. 11 CRT for the trip (10 days + 1 night) and 7 CRT for charter company verification.
Example 3: You decide to take a class from a certified American Sailing Association (ASA) instructor to get your ASA 104, Bareboat Cruising certification. You complete the class and your instructor signs your ASA logbook. In a few weeks you get your official ASA sticker for your ASA logbook. You log your new certification on Charter Rode. Charter Rode verifies your new certification with ASA directly and then your new certification is confirmed on Charter Rode. The total fee for your logbook entry would be 0 CRT as all qualifying certifications and licenses are always complimentary.
All CRT Exchanges are via secure one-time credit card payments. An additional 4% fee applies to all CRT Exchanges to offset fees charged by our payment gateway provider
Each Charter Rode Wallet may hold a maximum of 75 CRT at any time
