What is the Sailing Passport?

The ISA Sailing Passport is an On-line logbook, using the ChecKlick platform, in which each sailor will be able to record their individual sailing activities whether racing, cruising or just having fun on the water, and which, when used in conjunction with ISA Training Courses and ISA Clubs / Training Centres, will also allow participants (and their Instructors) track their progress in acquiring and developing the skills required for that course.
The ChecKlick platform was developed in conjunction with Sail Canada who now use the system in place of a paper based log book.

Why is the ISA introducing the Sailing Passport?

The ISA Strategic Review Group received significant feedback, which suggested that there is a perception that the ISA training schemes focused too much on certificates rather than on skills development. It is also part of the ISA development strategy to grow the levels of sailing activity outside of the traditional structured courses, particularly for young sailors.
The Passport, as an online logbook, is designed to facilitate this by focussing on skills and experiences, not on certificates, and to do so in the "modern" way – dispensing with (easy to lose or damage) paper logbooks, while also enabling training programmes be distributed to users more efficiently online.
The introduction of the Sailing Passport offers a wide range of benefits to sailors, Clubs, Training Centres and the ISA including easier tracking of progress, more emphasis on participation, easier communication with sailors, more accurate records and greater flexibility of training development.

When is the Sailing Passport being introduced?

The Sailing Passport will be rolled out for the beginning of the 2016 sailing season. ISA Clubs / Training Centres will initially be encouraged to implement the Sailing Passport for their small boat sailing scheme courses. Initially the Sailing Passport will be used for the Small Boat Sailing Scheme syllabus and then for Powerboating, Windsurfing, Cruising and other Activities in due course.

What can you do?

The ISA are aware that there may be concerns regarding the changes involved in the implementation of the Sailing Passport. In order to assist in addressing these concerns the ISA will put together a special working group in the beginning of January.
A more detailed explanation of the Sailing Passport, ChecKlick platform and the implementation plan are available Here
In these final stages of development we would ask that you please specify any key concerns you have regarding the implementation of the Sailing Passport in your organisation and send them to dave@sailing.ie
