Adrena, innovative company


ADRENA is a company specialized in navigation software and performance analysis. Located near Nantes in France, Adrena provides three ranges of product – First, Standard and Pro. Thanks to a complete and progressive offer that fits any level of sailing, the software satisfies the amateur through to professional teams alike. 

Adrena launched in 2003 its first software, Optima, which is still today the only one able to generate real speed polars and performance studies from water records.

The Sailect function has been developed with North Sails France in order to cartography and analyze the sails ranges. 

These 3 ranges center around two versions: regatta or offshore. Offshore version includes the routing function which contributes to the reputation of the company. 


Adrena assists skippers along their navigation and provides tactical decision-making tools adapted to their needs: GRIB weather files loading, performance analysis, routing, etc. As well as various functions related to safety (MOB, AIS or alarms) in order to guarantee secure navigations to any level of sailing – cruising and high-level regatta alike.


Passionate, accessible and efficient, Adrena team places huge importance on customer satisfaction. Thanks to a recognized know-how, Adrena became in a few years the French market leader in software for regatta sailing and ocean racing. The company now supplies 100% of Vendée Globe and Volvo Ocean Race skippers and has never stopped developing, perfecting and diversifying its products. 


In 2014, ADRENA decided to diversify its activities by using its expertise in routing optimization and performance analysis in order to enter on a new market. The company created AdrenaShip, a navigation software aimed at shipping (freighter, ferry, tanker, LNG, fishing boat, Offshore operations, cruiser, Super Yacht, etc.)

The objective of the software is to optimize the route and the speed of the ship in order to manage fuel consumption, operating cost and ETA while ensuring secure navigation.
