The ultimate tactical race compass and wind shift indicator
The solar-powered Race Master integrates with Micronet transmitters to provide additional tactical racing data such as boat speed, depth, wind direction and GPS data. Its two-tier display shows your heading, how far you're above or below mean course and how much you're being headed or lifted with 1.10" easy-to-read digits. It will enable you to establish quickly and easily which is the favored end of the start line and will help you sail the shortest distance to the windmark. Downwind, you can see how far off dead downwind you are and when you should gybe for optimal VMG. The T070 features a race timer, count down/count up display, backlighting to three levels with auto shut off. It's waterproof to 300', lightweight and portable.
