Moorspots live in the App Store

Hi there!
We want to share something cool with you. Remember we said in the previous newsletter that we targeted to launch the Moorspots app in the App Store as soon as we could? No more hassle with installation of beta-test versions, just click and go like you are used to?

Well, we did it!  Moorspots is live in the App Store:


Thank you
A big thank you to all of you who have tested the app. With your feedback we managed to improve the app and get it ready for release in the App Store.

One of the cool features that we think will make a big impact are the pictures in the app. Look at the spots on the bottom of this mail. Do these trigger your imagination? Do they make you want to start planning your sailing trip? These pictures came straight out of the app and were added by fellow sailors, just click on them and dream away.

What is next?

Early April we will start a marketing campaign to attract more sailing enthusiasts like you to share great spots. So please keep a sharp look out for Moorspots in the media and share the news with your friends and family. You can have look at the our press release article here: Press Release.

And as always: If you have any suggestions, questions or anything that you would like to share with us, feel free to drop us a message at!

With the kindest sailing regards, 
The Moorspots team
Joris, Jaap, Mathijs, Fokko & Marco
