Sailo will make Captains available for Renters and Boat Owners. Through the Sailo Service, a Captain on board is mandatory, whereby the Renter should choose from the listed Captains for the boat the Renter is interested in renting. If the Renter has preference for one Captain over another, he/she should make sure that the preferred Captain has been registered for approval for the desired boat on the Sailo website. The Captain will be the contracting employee of the Renter and as such agrees to the terms and conditions of the Captain Policies and Procedures. All Captains operating a Boat must be approved by the Boat Owner.
