The Sail Racer App calculates your perfect start and tactical maneuvers during the sailboat race based on current, wind, laylines and polar. Organize and track your own race event and invite everyone to a real-time view of your event.
Sail Racer app suggest the favored end of the start line, monitors your position, time and guides the maneuvers so that the start line is hit at the last moment with highest speed possible.
Sail Racer app enables easy navigation in the racing area. Interface is designed in a way that course efficiency, lay lines and direction shifts could be captured in a splash of a second. Skipper does not need to analyze the numbers and can concentrate on handling the boat, maximizing performance and playing tactical games against competitors.
NMEA0183 integration* allows to utilize yacht sensors for data acquisition. Graphs are drawn to visualize temporal changes in true wind angle, true wind speed, compass heading and boat speed. Skipper can take wind changes into account and perform maneuvers more efficiently. The effect of water current on boat movement is taken into account and visualized on dashboard.
Boat polar* enables crew to yield as much boat speed from available wind as possible. Polar curve and polar efficiency measure are made available at quick glance into compass rose.
Sail Racer is designed and developed by sailors. It has everything to sail on the edge:
- Course over ground
- Speed over ground
- Turn instruction
- Mark and Start line Range
- Wind shift indicator
- Course deviation indicator
- Cross track error
- Count down time
- Time to burn
- Instant tracking
- Wind speed and angle graphs*
- Compass heading graph
- Polar efficiency*
- Tack and jibe angles
- Water current*

Have a good start and even better finish.
WARNING: App is using internal GPS receiver when it is not connected to external GPS via NMEA0183 interface. Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.
