SailTimer™ for sailors is a quick and easy navigation method using real-time wind data and tacking distances to display the optimal tacking route. Determining the best tacking angles and an accurate Tacking Time to Destination have been problems for generations of seafarers.
Expensive GPS chartplotters have failed the sailing community, by not accounting for tacking distances when calculating ETA, and not explaining the problems with ETA and VMG for sailboat navigation in their owner’s manuals. So in the era of wireless tablets and smartphones, SailTimer is disrupting the status quo. Now, ordinary sailors can use advanced navigation functions like custom polar plots, without needing a professional tactician on board, or sponsors to cover the costs. With SailTimer™ products, you get the most advanced navigation products, at the best price.

But with the SailTimer™, ordinary sailors can use the mobile device they already have, with our wireless anemometer, so that as the wind shifts your tacking results update automatically. America’s Cup technology for your racing, cruising, daysailing or gunkholing — no matter what size, kind or age of sailboat you have. Read More
