Expedition Software


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).
Blue Water and Coastal cruisers use routing software to optimize route and departure planning.

Now you too can use Expedition. Your purchase includes a full software license and access to Peter Isler’s Expedition 101 software training webinar.

The Expedition webinar introduces you to all of Expedition’s Navigation, Weather GRIBs, Routing, Strategy and Performance features for distance racing, passage-making, and round the buoys racing.

For easiest access to this webinar be sure to create an account with login name and password at checkout.
