Barcelona World Race – Desjoyeaux into the lead with MaxSea Time Zero.

Michel Desjoyeaux and François Gabart (Foncia) take the lead of the fleet on Monday morning at 06h in the Barcelona World Race, the non-stop round-the-world yacht race for crews of two.

Aboard Foncia, is the software MaxSea Time Zero, developed by MaxSea International, worldwide leader in marine navigation software. Following the extraordinary 2009 campaign with victories in the Vendee Globe and the Istanbul Europa Race on Foncia, MaxSea International has renewed its technical partnership with Team Mer Agitée of Michel Desjoyeaux.
The version of MaxSea Time Zero that is using Michel Desjoyeaux was developed with the recommendations of Mer Agitée’s specialists, particularly the routing module. To conventional data of wind and currents were added parameters of wave’s height and speed.
Team Foncia is not the only crew to trust MaxSea, as 9 out of 15 ships joined the race equipped with the navigation software. MaxSea software is the result of more than 25 years of technology development in partnership with numerous sailing events around the world. It has been tested and approved by the best professional sailors, but also by thousands of amateur sailors.
