Learn how to differentiate between the various Marine Protected Zones in C-Map charts

With over 200 navigation chart references available, TIMEZERO lets you sail the entire planet! Criss-crossing through the seas in security thanks to reliable data can only happen by regularly updating your charts.

Certain navigation zones are more risky than others so it is all the more important to have up-to-date charts in these areas. This is certainly the case for Australia where many zones have become protected and regulated. In the latest update: 12.1, these zones are taken into account and the Great Barrier Reef is now mapped out with these protected areas.

The different AIS displayed within TIMEZERO

With the sailing season fully underway, whether you navigate in deep water or along the coastline, there will be more and more boats in the water which means that you need to be more vigilant. During certain situations such as during the night or when visibility is limited or when crossing shipping channels, trying to navigate by sight won’t be enough.

TIMEZERO puts your safety first and displaying AIS & ARPA targets is one of the most important features it provides. Alarms that are both visual and audible will alert you and help prevent collisions.

Catching up with TIMEZERO Ambassador Maewan Adventure as they sail the Kuril islands

We tracked down Maewan captain Erwan Le Lann who just got back from sailing through the Kuril islands. These islands are somewhat of a mystery as they have been disputed for over 100 years between Russia and Japan. This means that very few people get to sail them.

Maewan Adventure is a project to break boundaries by using the Maewan boat to access some of the most far flung places on earth and to perform extreme sports on these islands or in the waters around them. Snowboarding, climbing and kite-surfing are just some of sports that will take place for in this adventure. To be able to sail in these extreme locations they use the Maewan boat which is a Trisalu 37 ft boat built in 1982 in Quebec, built to perform in the toughest of conditions.
