Captain Eligibility Continued Monitoring


Sailo Captains are expected to keep their exemplary standing within the Sailo Community. Sailo may periodically monitor any Captain’s eligibility requirements to ensure that such Captain continues to qualify for membership under the Captain Eligibility Requirements. Moreover, in addition to the Sailo Community reviews, Captain reviews can be triggered by a number of external notifications including, but not limited to the external notifications by any Sailo user, internal notifications received through the Sailo system and/or external notifications by the State DMV, U.S. Coast Guard or any national and international authority.
