The Definition of Sailing:
Travel 421 Miles to Go 300
This is the 4th year for the SailTimer Wind Instrument RB™
with the Removable Battery in the nose cone (where it also serves as the counter-balance). We continue to fine-tune the design; e.g. the most recent inventory has a new set screw for the lower axle. If you want to sail optimal tacks without excess distance, you need accurate wind information. This is a mature product that is accurate and reliable. It has a 2-year warranty and gets lots of good reviews from users.
The photo above and following comment is from club races at the Toronto Hydroplane & Sailing Club (thsc.ca
): "I think the SailTimer is great and I have been very happy with the performance and certainly your support/service last year... We participated in the Lake Ontario 300, and it turned out to be an endurance race for us... our 300 nautical miles turned into 421. We encountered wind gusts that exceeded the wind meter on the SailTimer app (so only guessing at max wind speed - we didn't check the graph to find out), but it performed flawlessly for (the) 5 days of sailing."
For trailer sailors, there were some comments about the RB model in this forum
. All of our product order pages also have a panel for customer reviews, such as on the $23.99/month plan
and Wind Instrument order page
. Another customer added a comment
in the Accessories
: "I have used the SailTimer for two seasons and we are very happy with its performance. Due to very limited bulkhead space - we use an Apple iPad mounted inside but visible to our helmsman and sheet trimmers."
