Calculating a routing
Because sometimes, sailing the most direct and shortest route is not always the fastest nor the safest one, AdrenaFirst helps the sailor in choosing his route plan in good conditions.
It analyses the best route in terms of speed and/or safety. The route is calculated by using the following parameters: date and place of departure, destination, polar boat speed and wind conditions (based on GRIB file weather forecasting).
The Navigation Table provides a summary table of the navigation throughout the routing. It displays general information on routing, such as the estimated time of arrival (ETA), time travelled, distance to destination. At every stage, it also plots the course to steer as well as the expected conditions on the route.
Dual Routing, sailing and motoring
The Dual routing function is an exclusive innovation provided by Adrena.
A routing designed for cruising at last!
Because when cruising you start the engine as soon as wind’s going away, the routing software should take it into account and explore the engine powered routes when necessary.
The Adrena dual routing is the ability to mix the two propulsion modes in one routing calculation.
“I am in Porquerolles, when will I arrive in Calvi, knowing that every time wind is too low to go at least at 5 knots, I will start the engine? What will be my optimum route to get there as fast as possible? What will be my gas consumption?”
The Adrena routing will tell you the best route to follow by indicating the sailing and the engine powered periods. It will also give an estimation of your fuel consumption.
This dual routing brings cruises not only more performance with accurate travel estimated duration but also more safety by integrating the engine setting in the routing.
According to the wind prediction, you can set a minimum boat’s speed while sailing and as soon as the speed is getting lower, the engine is suggested in the route plan. Moreover, the software algorithm explores all the possible engine’s routes, not just the direct one: a longer route might help you find some more wind and continue your sailing navigation: You save gas, you go faster and you contribute in saving the planet with less CO emission.
