The Racing Transat 2022 subscription is offered for a period of 2 months from Nov. 1st to Dec. 31st 2022 at a single price of €250 excluding tax (€302.50 including tax) non-renewable.

Special conditions apply to the use of the ECMWF model, see details below.

The ECMWF model is provided by D-ICE Engineering (licensee) using "Squid" technology.

As an option, we offer the ROADBOOK on-board application proven during the last Vendée Globe and the Transat Jacques Vabre 2021.

This decision support for your weather routing is based on the historical routing calculation using a generic polar or your own polar (optional) and the re-analyzed ERA5 model from the European Center.
We pre-calculate more than 600 routes based on the weather conditions observed during the last 10 years.
Thanks to this software, installed on your on-board computer and 100% autonomous (requires no satellite connection), you will be able to analyze and compare the ideal historical routes consistent with your local weather, with a polar of your class, your generation of boat.
The comparison you can make with predictive routing will allow you to validate the scenario. With ensemble routing, you'll have the best data trio to validate your choice. 
Contact us for more information on this Roadbook application.
