Cyclops Marine has appointed Sparcraft Cape Town as its distributor for South Africa.
Initially developed in collaboration with Cambridge University, Cyclops Marine developed its technology to bring performance data to all sailors in a simple, user-friendly format.
Cyclops data is displayed via existing onboard electronics and a mobile app and is continuously logged for post-sail analysis and improvement.
The technology delivers continuous, wireless monitoring of rig and sail loads.
The load data can be displayed in multiple formats – either as raw numbers on screen, or as an intuitive dial in green, amber or red to indicate safety level. All data is also logged for later viewing and analysis.
Monitoring loads allows sailors to set an efficient rig setting for the conditions and keep an eye on the numbers/colours being displayed.
Sparcraft Cape Town is a manufacturer of yacht masts and spars.
