Racing with Adrena First

A strong decision-making tool for offshore race and windward/leeward course:

AdrenaFirst offers all features for planning the perfect start and assists the crew during the race by providing the right data at the right moment.

Sailing Offshore with Adrena First

ADRENA FIRST provides significant assistance for offshore sailing. The powerful routing calculation module calculates the best route from the following settings: date and place of departure, destination, boat speed polars, wind conditions (GRIB files) and currents.

It also takes dual routing – sailing and motoring – into account. Fuel consumption is estimated in order to anticipate the needs.

Prepare your cruise with Adrena First

What is the distance to the next mooring? How long will last the navigation? What heading should I take? What is the minimum depth to moore? How will turn the wind today, tonight?

ADRENA FIRST will not only help you access all those data but also offer many other functions like instruments calibration, weather Grib display, currents... Sailing has never been easier!
