  • I note in other threads Strava advise they will add a sport if enough people request it, so here is my request - please can we have sailing added. Thanks

  • I have used windsurfing, but it certainly is a different activity.  Just imagine if we could record races with Strava and maybe differentiate people sailing different classes of boats.

  • How much interest does it require to get sailing added?  Here's another vote anyway.

  • I've just started racing yachts in small, handicap club races and would love to be able to analyse my performance.

    There may be some extra challenges as Strava will record speed over ground, but not tidal currents and wind speed, but it would be great to see where the good and not so good decisions were made.

  • Please add sailing! I would like to analyse the data properly rather than listing it as a workout or something silly. Sadly the data can be viewed in Garmin as sailing, yet Strava hasn’t come to the table yet. Please let us centralise all our activities on the Strava platform!
    Vote Sailing +1 for me!
    This thread is 4 years old. Hurry up 😜

  • For our family the two to add would be sailing and equestrian. I think, elsewhere, I've also suggested that an "other" category would be a good idea. Tagging uncategorised activities as "other" would avoid upsetting some of the communities on strava that get upset about such things...

  • Do we have an update on this? It would be great to simply have the category 'Sailing' to start.

  • Sailing with Strava would be great. How come people have been requesting this for nearly 4 years and still no sailing option?

  • Add sailing please. Cant understand why you'd have windsurfing and not sailing.

    Also have the option to record activities for the variois boats you may use, like you can record against different bikes.

  • Yes please.  Strava support/admin team, PLEASE respond to this thread.  We've been asking for Sailing to be added as an activity type for a very VERY long time, and Strava is silent on this feature request.  Why the delay/reluctance to take action?

  • I have been apart of this discussion for a long time, and it appears that Admin is not interested at all because maybe sailing and sailors are so old hat and they rather cater for much younger audience and activities such as Stand up Paddle boarding or wind surfing, rock climbing? But they have added E Bikes.

    Admin response would be very appreciated, but after this length of time I don't think they are interested

  • There are now 3 threads requesting Sailing to be added as an activity type.  As advised by the Admin comment at the top of this thread, I'd encourage everyone cast your vote here: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/activitytypesonstrava

  • Any suggestions for features that could be added for premium users for sailing. If they can monetise sailing, the developers have more incentive to add it.

    Analysis like speed/distance made good could be premium features for sailing.

    Please suggest any others, here and also on the survey above.

  • Above suggestions are good. If Strava can get access to tidal stream info it could add an estimated speed, distance and course steered through water.

    The runners' flyby feature would be useful for comparing performance of others in a race.

    I also wonder if the speed and accuracy of tacks could be measured by looking at the time taken to get from one stable heading to the next - something I'm interested in.

    If a handicap calculator or look up table could be used and applied to a boat's results the adjusted figures would be very interesting.

  • Let's just keep this going. STRAVA, PLEASE ADD SAILING.

    Re-posting the link to the survey that admin has posted. https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/activitytypesonstrava Be sure to cast your vote for sailing.

    Thank You.

  • Survey done, thanks for re-posting. Come on Strava - let's get this done. There are lots of features you could extrapolate for the racing and cruising sailor. Trips away cruising, sea mileage logged etc. Lap times and heart rates for racing athletes including peaks during high intensity manoeuvres such as kite hoists and mark-roundings, 'up' time spent flying and percentages for foiling sailors, speed kept through tacks etc. From the information you already log you could use all of this on your premium analysis model - more business and more revenue. Please at least do the research.

  • These post are from 2016 and up. Are people from Strava even reading this?

     

    Why is sailing not an option yet?

  • I fully support this request... but it sounds like there is no response from Strava to this unfortunately.

  • Please add sailing. Sailing a racing dinghy is very physical and very much a training activity.

  • I would love sailing adding to the activities. It would be fantastic if it were possible to over-lay the GPS Tracks of two competitors in the same race - to see who was pointing highest on the beats etc.

  • I'm guessing it doesn't get added because Strava tries to promote sports that get the heart rate up - relaxing on the deck of a yacht doesn't really accomplish that. For those racing or interested in sailing performance, try RaceQs. It's basically Strava for sailors. You can track and just see your own tack/gybe/VMG performance, or setup a racecourse and track each boat in a fleet race and compare performance. I wouldn't call it 'intuitive' but it is all free and I'm happy to answer questions about it.
