The deteriorating conditions of our oceans are, sadly, well known to all of us.
For Navionics, it’s part of our nature to love the sea. Oceans, seas, lakes and rivers are the “ground” on which we meet with our users, where our paths cross. So naturally with love comes care…
This is why we are enthusiastic to join an incredibly powerful project: eXXpedition Round the World, an all-female two-year sailing research mission around the world to investigate the causes of and solutions to ocean plastic pollution.
eXXpedition brings together people and companies that feel the same urge to act, to be part of the change, to explore solutions.
“Navionics is proud to support eXXpedition because as citizens of our planet and participants in the marine space, we believe it is our responsibility to support efforts that explore the human impact of those navigating our oceans. We salute what the eXXpedition team is doing and we’re honored to be a part of their expeditions.” Says Shaun Ruge, Product Strategy Director at Navionics. As Official Supplier, Navionics will be accompanying the crew for their two-year voyage that will span thirty-eight thousand nautical miles. In fact, we have provided a set of GPS plotter charts as well as our Boating app to cover the complete. With this equipment on board, the crew will be able to study map details, plan routes and view port plans and much more on the screens on their GPS chartplotters. In addition, they will be able to take advantage of the handy solutions and social features that our app provides.
