The Clipper Race has renewed its partnership with TimeZero by MaxSea, returning for a third consecutive edition as the Official Navigation Software Supplier.
The eleven strong fleet of 70 ft ocean racing yachts will be equipped with TZ Professional for the 40,000 nm circumnavigation. Renowned for its famous routing algorithm, Weather Routing Module, and cutting edge Position Report tool, TZ Professional will enable the Clipper Race Skippers to seek out the fastest route, plan their race strategies and keep track of the competition.
The Weather Routing Module, created for competition, provides unrivalled performance and usability for skippers. The Clipper Race teams will utilise two main features whilst racing: polars (wind, speed and sails) and weather forecasts, in order to optimise their route, depending on their parameters, and increase performance.
The TimeZero by MaxSea solution is the result of more than 30 years of innovation and development in marine navigation technology for professional racers and recreational sailors. Offering a wide range of possibilities, TZ Professional will be used by the Clipper Race Office and its Skippers to maximise team performance.
In addition, the Clipper Race fleet will be one of the first to benefit from the release of the new TimeZero by MaxSea software: Version 4. This update will include new exclusive tools, weather display and forecasts.
Bérenger Cyne, from TimeZero by MaxSea said: “We are happy to be part of the Clipper Round the World Yacht Race adventure for the third consecutive edition! The Clipper Race offers us a great opportunity to showcase our cutting-edge technology to professional and non-professional sailors all around the world. It’s also an amazing way to educate people about boating, sailing, racing and show that technology can be accessible to everyone.”
