Speaking of charts... Are your region's marine charts up to date? Navionics is constantly updating its marine charts, and you can ensure that your region’s chart’s are up to date by creating or participating in a Navionics Sonar Logging Event.
If you’re hosting a group event for Summer Sailstice (or any other club event throughout the year), register the event with Navionics and invite all the boats to participate in recording important information for your local waters.
Using your boats’ chart plotters you will log your sailing area and Navionics will then use this information to create up-to-date charts. This is a great way to ensure safe boating in your area plus, by participating in a sonar logging event you have the chance to win a Navionics+ Chart.
Take a look at these before and after shots:
Navionics will send you everything you need for the boats to record the information, and when the recordings are returned to Navionics they are turned into new marine charts for that area. Get more information here or contact Tom Branch Jr. at Navionics.
