The Cruising Association's exclusive mobile membership app, CAptain's Mate, has recently been further enhanced to provide its 6,300-strong global membership with fingertip access to details of the hundreds of discounts available to them through a network of worldwide suppliers.

The user menu also includes a function allowing members to identify country-specific discounts nearest to them using maps.

Furthermore, when claiming a discount, or for any other reason, members can now visually demonstrate their CA membership using the app's membership card display that links into the CA's database for verification.

CAptain's Mate gives members access to contribute to the CA's substantial pool of cruising destination reports around the globe, helping members find assistance from one of the CA's many Honorary Local Representatives (HLRs), and it also enables them to locate and meet each other wherever they are in the world through the optional "Find My Friend" feature.

The CA is Britain's leading organisation for cruising sailors with 6,300+ members around the world, providing services, information, help and regulatory and technical advice to sailors worldwide through RATS, an executive committee of the CA.
