    The information age is hitting sailing full force. Today's top racers use on-board computers to optimize racing strategy and boat performance on the fly (while also compiling data for later analysis). The Racing & Performance Software Course shows how Expedition software can improve your racing and teaches you how to use the software. As a software training program, this course is perfectly suited to on-line Webinar delivery.
