You can add Google Calendar to your existing Google Mail account, or create a new account. Either way, it only takes a few seconds to sign up. It really is that quick and easy!

With your Google Calendar account, you can also subscribe to sailfastchicago.com calendars. Race schedule information is then updated for you automatically.
Using Google Calendar– or other software supporting the iCal format, such as Apple iCal or Mozilla Sunbird– is a good solution for the tricky, time-consuming task of managing and communicating crew schedules.
Google Calendar provides an interesting feature- free text message alerts. Not guaranteed to wake up passed-out, hungover sailors on race days, though. However, automatic text alerts may be helpful if sent early the night before racing!
The sailfastchicago.com calendar has been tested for compatibility with the following software:
- Apple iCal
- Mozilla Sunbird (Mozilla Lightning plug-in has not been tested, but should also work.)
- Google Calendar
If you use any of the above software, or any other that supports ical calendar format, your calendar software is compatible with sailfastchicago.com calendar.
