Tous les instruments et données de navigation utilisées par notre Ambassadeur Erwan Le Lann, Capitaine du voilier de l’association Maewan

Que ce soit pour préparer une sortie en mer ou gérer sa navigation une fois à bord, il est primordial d’avoir un accès à ses instruments et à ses données de navigation en permanence.

TZ Navigator offre une utilisation confortable à ses utilisateurs puisqu’il permet d’afficher ou de masquer toutes les informations nécessaires pour naviguer en toute sécurité. Compatible avec les normes NMEA 0183 et NMEA 2000, il est possible d’interfacer les instruments de navigation facilement : radar, émetteur-récepteur AIS, GPS, … D’autant plus que la comptabilité avancée avec les produits de la marque FURUNO facilite cette intégration.

Erwan Le Lann, Ambassadeur TIMEZERO depuis plusieurs années, utilise TZ Navigator v4 à bord de Maewan pour effectuer toutes ses navigations. Sillonnant les mers du Pacifique, Erwan à un style de navigation bien particulier puisqu’il passe beaucoup de temps à naviguer près des côtes afin de s’appuyer sur l’expédition sportive comme levier d’actions éducatives et environnementales. Il a donc optimisé son installation à bord afin d’avoir un accès permanent à ses instruments et ses données.

Dans cet article, notre partenaire décrit avec précision les différents instruments qu’il utilise pour préparer et gérer sa navigation. En seconde partie de l’article, Erwan présente toutes les données de navigation nécessaires pour assurer à son équipage une navigation en toute sécurité.

Pride of Baltimore: For the love of history

In 1977, the original Pride of Baltimore vessel was commissioned and sailed more than 150,000 nautical miles before unfortunately sinking in 1986 after an accident. Following an outpour of public support, it was decided that a new replacement boat would be built. It was named Pride of Baltimore II and has been sailing ever since. It has visited more than 200 ports in 40 countries and has recorded over 250,000 nautical miles. Every year, thousands of people are welcomed aboard the ship for private sailing charters, receptions, tours, day trips, youth programs, and overnight guest crew experiences.

Last summer, the Pride of Baltimore II embarked on the 2019 Tall Ships Challenge. This year, the event toured the Great Lakes across Canada and the United States, it assembles several “tall ships” and attracts crowds in several cities to witness these beautiful boats.


TIMEZERO is a proud partner of the Pride of Baltimore that was equipped with our TZ Professional software during this summer’s challenge. We caught up with Senior Captain Jan C. Miles to ask him a few questions about his experience with our solution.

Introducing our new TIMEZERO Ambassadors: Explorking

Kevin and Leanne are a Canadian entrepreneur couple that, pushed by their love for the outdoors; traded their office jobs for an online business. The goal was to explore the world while working. That is how the name “Explorking” was born, a combination of exploring and working with the goal of “working from anywhere and living from everywhere”.


They are now proud owners of a 60-footlong catamaran that has become the vessel with which they explore the world. Operating such a large boat with limited navigating experience can be a stressful experience and therefore TIMEZERO is proud and excited to partner with them on this great adventure. And, allow them to accomplish their mission in the safest and most efficient way possible.

Donald Crowhurst’s world tour, the “maritime drama of the century”!

In our last article published in July, we introduced the Golden Globe Race and more specifically its 2018 edition. To celebrate the 50th anniversary of this incredible race, a new world tour was organized with the same rules and sailing conditions as in 1968. By the way, the navigators are still navigating!

The GGR has become a legendary sporting event, making headlines in newspapers around the world during its first edition. Sir Robin Knox-Johnston, for the first time in history, was sailing around the world alone, without any stopover or assistance. A real feat for the time! But this mythical race has also become known for another reason. A tragic event from which is still called today the “maritime drama of the century”.
