MaxSea Partner With Velux 5 Oceans Race.

The VELUX 5 OCEANS race continues to announce partners leading up to the start in October. The latest partner is marine navigation supplier MaxSea.

MaxSea will work with the race direction team by providing a complete navigation software and electronic chart package that will link with the race entrants’ onboard trackers, allowing real time monitoring of the fleet for safety and up to date progress reports of the competition as it unfolds. Experts from MaxSea will also assist and train the VELUX 5 OCEANS race management team in the use of their products and supply technical assistance when required during the race.

VELUX 5 OCEANS race director David Adams said:

“It is great to have MaxSea onboard for the VELUX 5 OCEANS and the provision of the necessary routing software to the race management team will be a real asset for the safety and watch keeping of the fleet. MaxSea’s products are used and trusted by some of the best sailors in the world and we have every confidence they will perform outstandingly in the 2010/11 VELUX 5 OCEANS.”

Frédéric Algalarrondo, sales director of Maxsea International said:

“We are really proud to be partners of the VELUX 5 OCEANS. David Adams and the Race Direction can fully count on our support during the entire race.”

Alongside their role helping the race management team, MaxSea will be at the race start and finish in La Rochelle to showcase their state-of-the-art technologies.
