Expedition logo
Designed by sailors for sailors.

Expedition is a complete tactical and navigation package developed by Volvo Ocean Race navigator and Whitbread winner Nick White. Two-time America’s Cup winning navigator Peter Isler has consulted closely during the development of the system.

The first versions of Expedition were used successfully by Nick aboard the Volvo 60, NewsCorp in the 2001-2 Volvo Ocean Race and then aboard Stars & Stripes in the 2002-3 Louis Vuitton Cup. Expedition also managed all data capture, logging and display for the Stars & Stripes test and weather programs. Expedition has been continually enhanced since, with further testing in all the major races of the world.

Expedition has been specifically designed from the ground up to fulfil all the requirements of the modern racing navigator and tactician, whether on deck or in the navigation station. Throughout the development process, versatility and ease of use as well as the attaining best possible performance and reliability have remained key goals. Part of the reason that new users can quickly become proficient with Expedition is because the program was designed for the Windows environment.
