Peter Isler Expedition Seminar Announced

isler seminar2015 275Just one more great seminar for Transpac Racers and others interested coming up in the month of June.

Peter Isler, world class navigator and sailor, will present his Expedtion - Navigating and Routing Seminar in the evening on June 27 at the Los Angeles YC in San Pedro. The seminar will focus on Transpac race strategy, optimal routing, GRIB files for wind and current, and many of the·powerful capabilities of Expedition software.

Although the focus is on Transpac Race, the material covered will help anyone interested in using weather routing tools to race or cruise on the west coast. 

And, This Just In:  Harry Pattison from Ventus Navigation will be giving a short seminar on connecting and using Ventus Navigation apps with Expedition Navigation software during breaks and after Peter Isler’s Expedition seminar. Material to be covered will include setting up a Ventus network connection in Expedition and on your mobile device, selecting data channels to receive, setting up custom pages to display the data you want, and some tricks to using Ventus efficiently.  He will also be available during the intermission and after the seminar for questions and help.  A great bonus!

And two or three from the same boat get the group rate discount!
