RATE GYRO

Get your wind data right. The Rate Gyro is the best solution for everyone who wants the most accurate wind data onboard.  Wind sensor brand independent and future proof. No matter which yacht you’re sailing or wind sensor you are using, the Rate Gyro gets you on the right track. Especially in steep, high and confused seas.

SEE THE DIFFERENCE

The Sailmon Rate Gyro use a 9-axis IMU to stabilize the wind readings due to pitch and roll influences. The graph above shows the difference between sailing with (top graph) or without (bottom graph) a Rate Gyro.

Don’t take our word for it

”Weather conditions were very easy this weekend. 7-14kts, sun and little waves but even with this sea state we can see differences before wind compensation! Lower damping on TWD ( from 10 to 4, TWA 3 (same as before) but with much better stability of the data (great help on downwind mode) and TWS (damping 3) is not doing high peak values as before so by now we have better lay lines (upwind/downwind) and better downwind angles trying to match targets angles. Great work!”
