The Story

Herbert Bay

Hi, I'm Herbert, the founder of waypoint. You might ask yourself, why waypoint? What is it good for? My personal need for a solution like waypoint was always there. I am a visual person and love photos. Especially from remote and exotic places. Wonderful to see all those pictures of wide horizons and amazing places that travellers take. As a travel addict myself, I would like to know where those places are in order to plan a trip or just save them somewhere to maybe visit them later.

The most amazing places on this planet have no address. They often are accessible only by boat or hike. A good example are the Indispensible Reefs in the Pacific ocean. One of the world's best and least accessible diving spots. Fully covered by water, no land in sight. Where are the best anchorages there? Where is the cooles dive spot? Before Waypoint, there was no app for this.

A slightly different example is related to places you visited once e.g. on a business trip, such as good restaurants, fancy bars, etc. Places you would like to visit again. You don't want to write down the address and look it up on Google every time. When traveling, this also costs roaming.

Waypoint was the app missing for these and numerous related cases. Send your position to friends, send a waypoint when somebody wants to visit you but does not know where you live, etc. There is some more stuff to be explored and you have probably also a lot of ideas. I am happy to realize them for you. So if you have an idea, just send me an email.

I started Waypoint back in Switzerland, but now I am sailing around the world and continued developing it during my night watches on the Atlantic and Pacific ocean. The app is field-tested for you in conditions with poor or no Internet connection. Waypoint is integral part of my navigation tools to e.g. finding again the anchor place and letting friends and family at home know where we are and what we are doing. I hope you will like Waypoint. If there is anything I can do for you, let me know.

Yours sincerely - Herbert Bay

P.S. Here my personal waypoints

"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover."
- origin unclear, often said to come from Mark Twain
