Technical Tools for Safer Boating

Our featured video for this issue focusses on the new Boating Simulator from CPS-ECP. Want to practice driving at night, docking, maneuvering in a current, in wind, on a slalom course? These are just a few of the really useful scenarios that you will experience with the simulator. Sometimes technology and water don't mix; we prefer to leave it all behind as we head out into the open water. This new tool is an awesome way to use technology to make your time on the water easier, safer and more enjoyable.

With the starting gun of the 2015 Les Voiles de St. Barth due to be fired in little less than two months, the list of entries continues to flesh out.
