Tactiqs® Performance System 5.0 Announcement
We are excited to announce a major update with Tactiqs® 5.0 bringing you integrated weather forecasts and routing in our iPadOS version.
We partnered with Avalon Offshore, a leading provider of weather forecast data and routing solutions. Based in France, Avalon is a well-known and trusted source for offshore racers throughout France and Europe and gaining traction in North America. Together with Tactiqs® performance data management and tactical information we can now offer you a complete integrated solution for coastal and offshore racing.
The routing functionality is built directly into the Tactiqs® iPadOS app to allow on- and offline operation, and weather data is available via Avalon’s server network in a highly size-optimized format.
The new Tactiqs® version comes with a fully functional 6 week free trial of the weather forecast and routing functionality for all our users. An annual subscription to the weather data and routing functionality will be available after the trial for US $99.95 to
- Show area forecasts for many sources, e.g. GFS, HRRR, ECMWF, NAM, France Arpege, and others
- Show predicted course metrics for inshore races based on your forecast of choice and the race start time
- Calculate optimum routes for longer distances based on wind, current, waves, and weather
