EF Language used CompuSail to dynamically record and refine their polar data while winning the '97-'98 Whitbread Around the World Race!

"Set-It-And-Forget-It Operation"

Rich in Features...
Yet Remarkably Easy to use!
CompuSail sends the information you need
right out to your existing deck displays.
A below-deck operator is not required!

CompuSail works with any instrument system with either RS-232 or NMEA output; B&G, KVH Quadro, Nexus, Ockam and others.

CompuSail Grand Prix Edition's extensive features include:

  • - High Resolution Strip Charts of all monitored data, including wind speed and direction, with user selected time interval.
  • - Graphic Views of Start Line & Current Leg, w/ boat position, laylines, rhumb line, navigational & performance data all on one screen & in scale.
  • - Scaled View of Race Course showing marks, hazards, and continuous plot of boat's track around the course.
  • - Target Boat Speed & Target Wind Angle For Beats, Reaches and Runs.
  • - Easy-To-Read Short & Long Term Wind Speed & Direction Averaging Takes The Guesswork Out Of Strategic Planning.
  • - Current set/drift is derived in real-time; "current" effect shown for all calculated data, this leg and next.
  • - Degree of Advantage This Tack/Jibe vs Opposite Tack/Jibe.
  • - Optimum Headings This Tack and Opposite Tack.
  • - Layline Monitoring: Time & Distance-To-Go To Layline, Time & Distance-To-Go To Opposite Layline.
  • - Next- Leg Calculations: apparent wind speed & angle, optimum heading, layline distances, advantaged tack/jibe.
  • - Sail Selection Prompting for each leg of the course.
  • - Timing Functions: Race Clock Timing & Stopwatches.
  • - Dynamic VMC Boat Speed, Wind Angle & Course to steer, "what-if" net effect analysis for anticipated future conditions.
  • - High Accuracy Dynamic Current Set & Drift calculations.
  • - Automatic Course Creation for windward/leeward & olympic courses; utilizes saved mark lists & courses (which can be prepared at home in advance) for point-to-point races.
  • - Automatic Range & Bearing to all marks.
  • - Speed Of Advance, Time To Go To Mark, & Back Rng/Brng.
  • - Net Effective Course & Speed Over Ground.
  • - Dynamic Current (tidal) Modified Courses To Steer.
  • - Great Circle Calculations.
  • - Data Logging for future analysis.
  • - Continuous Polar Speed Performance Monitor: A benchmark that's great for keeping crew sharp on distance races.
  • - Performance Evaluation: short and long term performance function averaging; a quantified protocol for testing sails, sail combinations, trim techniques, etc.
  • - Automatic Time Allowance Calculations For IMS (including PCS), PHRF & IOR: at the press of a button, determines time allowed/owed to each boat at any mark.
Polar Table
  • - High Definition True Polar Tables and Diagrams are automatically generated and updated while your boat is sailing, producing highly accurate (vs theoretical) target speeds; includes manipulation and comparison routines.
  • - Built-in "Auto-Cal" routines that finally produce a reliable and stable mag wind solution for all instrument systems.
  • - Yacht Management Record Keeping (crew rosters, inventory, maintenance scheduling).
  • - PC RS-232 Compatible Sailing Instruments, such as B&G 6/790 (or HYDRA 330 w/upgrade), KVH Quadro, Ockam or Signet Smart-Pak, etc.,
    including Nexus sailing instruments
  • - IBM/PC compatible computer:
    • (a) Intel 8086-8, 286, 386 SX/L/DX, 486 SX, Cyrix 486 SLC; all with 80x87 math co-processor, or
    • (b) 486 DX or 586 or higher Pentium.
  • - Multitasking requires Windows 95, otherwise Win 3.x or DOS.
  • - Recommended: GPS or Loran (w/ NMEA 0183 output).  Differential GPS improves real-time tidal current calculations.
