When did you last update your onboard GPS plotter chart?
Navionics charts are used in many brands of GPS plotters and are distributed in the UK & Ireland. Navimaps Ltd. formerly Navionics UK, have over 30 years’ experience in supporting Navionics and more recently have added updates to Garmin BlueCharts® to the RYA member benefits offer.
Many Garmin plotters have embedded cartography – containing the version of Garmin BlueChart® that was current at the time the plotter was manufactured.
Since then, it is likely that there would have been a substantial number of chart updates, so it’s worth checking your Garmin plotter to see if it has embedded cartography, i.e. there is no card in the card slot. If that is the case, an economical upgrade path is available with the purchase of a special new chart card for embedded plotters.
Alternatively, you may already have a Garmin BlueChart card which is due for an update.
In both cases updating to the latest version of BlueChart g3 is available to you as an RYA member through the RYA Member Reward Partner programme.
Alternatively, of course many plotters from other brands like Raymarine, B & G, Simrad use Navionics charts. In this case get a fresh new updated card - register, and start your subscription at your convenience, and get a further year of downloadable updates and advance features for your plotter from Navionics.
As an RYA Membership Reward Partner, Navimaps are offering members up to 15% discount on chart updates for your onboard GPS plotter.

Sebago Docksides turn 50 years old
Heat tanned leather, caringly sewn by hand. Slip-proof rubber soles. Brass eyelets. Footwear that is as tough as it is comfortable: functional and elegant. Docksides, for 50 years the quintessential boating shoes. A cult object endowed with the rare gift of exceptional things: becoming ever more beautiful with the passing of time.
This most iconic boating shoe was born in 1970, when Sebago® created the perfect “boating moccasin”. A design inspired by the geography and traditions of New England, with its sea, lakes and sailing traditions; where the trend-setting American élite goes on holiday.
Docksides were a symbol of excellence right from the start. From the choice of the leather to the manufacturing process, everything is done with a rigorous artisanal approach in accordance with Maine’s best manufacturing techniques.
Fifty years later nothing has changed in the original Docksides, except in their name. The iconic design has become known as Portland Docksides, as a homage to the city in Maine on the Atlantic Ocean where they first appeared along its docks. As for all iconic items, everything else is the same. The same artisan care, the same quality and timeless elegance. Today just like 50 years ago.
RYA members save 20% across the entire Sebago range. To claim your exclusive RYA member discount code visit the Sebago member benefit page.
