The world's largest equipment fair for water sports starts next Tuesday in Amsterdam. The Dame Award is presented in this context, the design award goes to particularly innovative products. Here is a small selection from the nominated products:
Particularly precise positions with TriNav
Exactly: TriNav GPS
The GPS160 TriNav is designed to provide particularly accurate position data. For this purpose, the signals from GPS, Glonass and Galileo are received and evaluated. It is intended to help avoid faults that can lead to inaccuracies due to the constant comparison. Precise position data is an important basis, especially for autopilots.
Roll instead of fold: the new roll boom from Bamar
The right twist: Bamar Boom Furling Manual Mechanism
With the Boom Furling Manual Mechanism, Bamar has a new roller boom in its range. The sail is rolled in and out manually using a line guide. A special lock allows reefing without constant load on the control line. The roller boom can also be equipped with an electric drive.
Perceived security also counts: The ResQLink display shows whether the emergency call is really out
Better safe than sorry: ResQLink PLB
With the ResQLink, ACR Electronics has developed an emergency transmitter with a display. Studies are said to have shown that it has a calming effect for sailors in emergency situations if they are shown on the transmitter that the emergency call has really been sent. The Personal Locator Beacon is already on sale, we already presented it in YACHT 17/2019.
