    The information age is hitting sailing full force. Today's top racers use on-board computers to optimize racing strategy and boat performance on the fly (while also compiling data for later analysis). The Expedition webinar introduces you to all of Expedition's Navigation, Routing, Strategy and Performance features. As a software training program, this course is perfectly suited to on-line Webinar delivery.
