Sir Robin Knox-Johnston navigates with Nobeltec TimeZero software

Nobeltec is thrilled to announce that we have been selected as the official navigation software supplier for the Clipper Round the World Race for the 2015/16 edition. All yachts taking part in this internationally-renowned race will be equipped with Nobeltec TimeZero software.

Sir Robin Knox-Johnston said: “I’m very pleased to welcome Nobeltec on board as our Official Navigation Software Supplier for the Clipper 2015-16 Race.

“I used NobeltecTimeZero Trident software on my own boat during the Route du Rhum race where I finished third in my class. I was very impressed with it and am confident that our teams will be guided safely and competitively round the world with it.”  

The Clipper Round the World Race
The 10th edition of this race will begin in summer 2015. This race is unusual in that it is open to everyone. The only requirements are that participants have a good level of fitness and be over 18 years of age.

Sailors can choose to complete the full circumnavigation or select individual legs. It is the only race in the world where the organisers supply a fleet of twelve identical racing yachts, each with a fully qualified skipper to safely guide the crew. In this case, every single yacht will navigate with Nobeltec TimeZero software.

The race statistics:
    •    40,000 nautical mile race around the world
    •    70-foot ocean racing yachts will participate
    •    Divided into eight legs and 16 individual races
Nobeltec TimeZero software aboard!
