Add Sailing as an activity on Strava

As with kayaking, windsurfing  and other watersports, it would be good to be able to log my sailing activities in Strava.

  • NC215 from New Caledonia (France)

    I want to use as the basis Strava withsports at sea.
    Racing windsurf, kitesurf and Stand Up Paddle.
    Is it possible to get speeds in knots (nautical miles)?
    Is it possible to see appear in other activities as cycling or running in the newspaper and statistic? (I downloaded several activitées but only cycling appears (Sport mode))

  • It would be wonderfull to use STRAVA to see how fast I race my 12ft dinghy in the races and how I could improve my speed. Do not wait too long to add sailing to strava....summer does not last long

  • Yes, per other post on sailing - getting activity type added along side windsurfing would be great.  Getting speed rating in Knots would be also be good.

    The Flyby feature (please never get rid of that!) is especially cool for dinghy sailors reviewing race strategies.

    Flyby comment - it would be handy for those on smaller courses if we could expand / enlarge the track more than we currently can. I note we can zoom in considerably more on the normal "activity" map than we can in the flyby feature.  This is a limiting factor for smaller, sprint race events where the course is smaller than a "normal" race course.

  • Chicken or Egg - how do sailors get more sailing features (as per above) added if not many sailors know strava could be so useful to them??  Who drives penetration into a sport?

  • Hi - Ton - can't you do that now - I do it using the standard app, log it as windsurfing and see the track of my sailing.  Can see the speed chart for the session.  Can use the flyby feature to compare yourself to other running strava that raced via the overlay of courses.

    Although, Strava, if you could get rid of the light blue course overlay that would be handy because when the track is overlaid over water we can't see it! Or let the colours be user definable?

  • Please add sailing. It's great to watch how the race went in flyby mode, assuming other competitors are tracking as well.
