Sail-World.com : B&G Launches Online Academy for all sailors
B&G Launches Online Academy for all sailors


'B&G academy matrix'    B&G

B&G, leader in marine electronics for sailing, is pleased to announce the launch of its new online sailing academy. Devised to help all sailors, whether expert or novice, to brush up on their sailing theory and improve technique, the B&G Academy consists of innovative e-learning tutorials designed by experienced sailing tutors.

The tutorials provide practical examples of key sailing techniques and topics – everything from the Wind Triangle to start lines, instruments to safety and race strategy is covered via animated video tutorials.

Whether a budding cruiser or a Vendée Globe hopeful, all you have to do is sign up to gain access to the free B&G Academy content and take part in the tutorials. Each tutorial comes complete with an interactive quiz to ensure that users have understood the information they have learned.

The tutorials not only provide key sailing data, they also allow users to identify areas where they wish to improve their knowledge further. With a matrix of tutorials that can be chosen from, participants can pick the topics they find most interesting. Completion of an entire tutorial level also brings with it rewards in the form of exclusive B&G merchandise.

Leif Ottosson, CEO of B&G said: 'B&G has a history of providing the very best sailing electronics and continues to set the standard for sailors – we even helped the latest Vendee Globe 2013 winner to battle hostile seas and navigate ice gates with B&G equipment onboard.

'B&G is now set to share its vast collection of knowledge and help sailors of all levels and abilities to improve their sailing technique and confidence. Having the best equipment helps sailors keep safe and ahead of the competition, but we know that this isn’t the whole story- we want to provide a good knowledge base and up to date information to help them in every aspect of their sailing journey. That’s is why we’re proud to be the first marine electronics provider to launch tailored online e-learning for free!'
