Charter Rode Commits $75,000

AUSTIN, TX – May 10, 2023 – Charter Rode commits $75,000 for Salty Dawg Sailing Association members to establish their sailing resume on the Sailing Resume Blockchain.

More than 1,000 current SDSA members are eligible to receive the $75 benefit from Charter Rode. The benefit pays for the mandatory identity validation requirements of the Sailing Resume Blockchain and the first 25 days logged on a SDSA member’s sailing resume.

“We are excited to offer SDSA members this benefit. As insurance carriers tighten their underwriting, yacht owners are challenged to demonstrate that they are a lower overall risk,” said Jason Burns, Founder and President of Charter Rode.

Long-term boat ownership may not qualify individuals for the best rates. “Documenting experience and building a sailing resume on the Sailing Resume Blockchain allows underwriters a quick and reliable way to review and verify a sailing resume,” said Burns. “It demonstrates to an underwriter the sailor’s commitment to safety and accurate record keeping.”

The Sailing Resume Blockchain allows recreational and professional mariners to mathematically prove that their logbook and sailing resumes are authentic and unaltered. Insurance companies and other organizations use the Sailing Resume Blockchain to grant credentials, verify sea time, evaluate competencies, and provide value-added services to mariners worldwide.

SDSA members may log into the member only portal and follow the instructions to receive their $75 member only benefit. New members may join SDSA to access all of the benefits of the SDSA including the Charter Rode $75 offer.
