At the time of writing, Captain Sergio Davì, the Italian seafarer who left Palermo, Italy in mid-December in his 11m RIB headed for Los Angeles, was nearing the finish of his Ocean to Ocean RIB Adventure. 

Davì recently arrived in Ensenada, Mexico – home to the global production facility run by Navico, where a range of Simrad products are manufactured – in his Nuova Jolly boat and was welcomed into the marina by Simrad employees and colleagues. 

Davì commented: ‘From the very first moment of the preparatory stages, Ensenada has represented for me a fundamental stage of the entire journey, on a par with the Atlantic crossing and the crossing of the Panama Canal – firstly, because of the difficulties linked to the weather and sea conditions that I knew would make navigation to reach the last Mexican stop complicated, and secondly because of the unique experience of visiting the Simrad factory, where I had the chance to see at first hand the place where the precious on-board instrumentation that has enabled me to tackle even the most difficult navigation comes to life.’
