Product Description

Designed for racing sailboats, the gWind Race features a 3.3 feet (1 meter) straight pole to raise the transducer above the mast to remove turbulence errors. Features twin-fin technology with a three-bladed propeller for more accurate True Wind Speed (TWS) in lighter air, while the twin-fin design gives a more stable True Wind Angle (TWA). The three-bladed propeller, unlike a cups design, is always efficient.

Combined with optic reading, this transducer provides superior accuracy at low wind speeds and also provides for excellent linearity. And it's all connected using our lightest cable. The included GND 10 black box bridge enables the Nexus Network and Garmin compatible chartplotters to share critical NMEA 2000 data. Easy plug-and-play installation between Nexus, Garmin chartplotters and NMEA 2000.
