Weather4D on The Long Road 2018

Fanch Guillon is a participant in the rally “The Long Road 2018“. Arranged in parallel with the “Golden Globe Race”, but no other purpose than to commemorate the spirit of the Long Road Moitessier. This rally pilgrimage created by the late Guy Bernardin meets 23 marine several nationalities.

Former Lieutenant of Ship of the Royal, Fanch is an old sea dog, Cape Horner already sailing with his faithful Sun Fizz “Anik”. After a complete renovation of the boat, supported by Jeanneau and performed by students of the Nautical Institute UK, Fanch cast off the 18 June for this round the world solo and unassisted.

Met during a training at the INB, I was seduced, both men that the project, and have offered my modest contribution to navigation he wanted to do on iPad. Graciously provided the application Weather4D Routing & Navigation, weather a one-year subscription, and the entire world map available from Geogarage, I could accompany the advanced use of the application, whose recovery GRIB files with its Iridium GO!™.

The last email received from him is a real satisfecit for Weather4D, judge by yourself :

“If you knew how I really enjoy using Weather4D. A real gem this software ! Completely, effective, simple and fun. I do not know how I could live without it before ! It has everything ... I think I'm starting to master the now. The doc is well done. all the answers are found to the questions that may arise.
A big thank you for your support, for the time you devoted to me and having believed in my project. W4D is my main tool and because of him I am serene. The weather analysis becomes a game and it gives me the access door when I have a doubt. Thanks to him, the transition from black pole takes place without any problems. I already started studying later…
