Expedition Tactical and Navigation Software

Computers and Software

Expedition is simply the best tactical and navigation software available.

Expedition has been in development since the mid 1990s by veteran Volvo Ocean Race navigator and Whitbread winner, physicist Nick White.

Expedition has been used in multiple Volvo Ocean, America's Cup and Grand Prix events and is the most advanced and usable software available - for racing around the world or your local harbour.

Expedition is continually refined and developed with input from a core group of world-renowned navigators, including two-time America's Cup winning navigator Peter Isler.
