Water Music Trophy - 2015

s/v Zen Again

Mike Reynolds is the recipient of this year's Water Music Trophy, awarded for his creation of a repository of KAP charts with detailed instructions on their use as aids to navigation. His large database combines his own downloads with images shared by other cruisers which are now available on his site. Mike has also written very good explanatory articles covering how to work with these on both PC and iPad. His website contains very clear information that assists fellow cruisers with these new tools. He has also promulgated the use of SEAiq software, little known in the cruising world, but a capable package for iPad that allows KAP files to be used in real time with live NMEA data shared by Wi-Fi on board.
