Description:

Sailboats are usually equipped with a limited number of electronic instruments which give you basic information about the boat's performance in real time. The ambitious sailor however needs somewhat more information than is usually given by such standard equipment. The TACSAIL software, connected to these basic instruments will enable you to achieve this. Apart from improving your situational awareness in real-time, the software also allows you to record all the data given by the instruments for later replay and analysis at the time and place of your own choosing. From the comfort of your home you can thus relive your sailing trips or regatta's. By carefully observing and analyzing such replays you will learn how to improve your boat's performance. Care has been taken to provide the sailor with an easy to use and very intuitive interface. Most basic functions can be accessed by clicking a single button. This allows the use of touch-screens for viewing the data. To start exploring and using the program install either the TACSAIL Demo- or the Full-version on your PC.
