Sailing and team sports are our passion and we want to share our passion with everybody. We believe that in order for the sport to grow, we the sailors, need to be more connected, we need to share resources and we all need to grow our skills and become smarter about this sport we love.
We want to grow the sport of sailboat racing because we firmly believe that our lives are better because of it. Sailing has provided us with some wonderful opportunities and we felt it was time to give back to the sport. We decided that we would tackle getting people connected and getting them out on the water with minimal hassle and frustration. That’s how originally RosterMonsters.com and then RailMeets.com came to life.
Marco Heuer is the founder and tech guy behind the platform. His passion are all things involving water. Frozen or liquid and above or below the water line. He came to sailing back in 2001 while living in Southern California and has ever since been exploring the waters of Europe, Australia and the U.S. . In his day job, he works for a major software company and helps his customers sell their products online. From that experience he firmly believes that technology needs to get of the way and should rather enable the fun.
