30. maj 2021 | Version 3.3.1
This app is a must for any kitefoiler. It's absolutely perfect! It has everything I need. Love the VMG relative to wind. Love the speed focused screens.
I didn't know how well it worked before I bought a Garmin watch but decided to buy one to give it a try. I definitely don't regret the decision.
Only things I would add are double vibration feedback when I go above a preset speed and a different type of vibration feedback when I beat my session top speed. That way I can tell I hit the speed I've been wanting to hit without looking at the watch while going 34 knots and subsequently crashing into the water lol
Also average speed last 15 seconds and last 30 seconds would be awesome! Average VMG for same time periods would be nice too. And having them reset when big angle changes happen; like when switching from going upwind to downwind or vice versa
To summarize, knowing how good this app is, I wouldn't hesitate to spend the money to buy a Fenix 6 just to use this app. This app should definitely not be free.

Good ideas....... on the top speed beaten... it's going to be annoying at the beginning of the session and going off for a while as you keep overwriting the top speed ??...... Would probably need a 3-4 second vibrate because it will be occurring randomly and rider might not be ready for it.. I might see if I can add it in the main menu as an option to turn on or off - default will be off. and I can probably put a filter in there so you could disable it below X speed

Great app! I use it mostly on 26 and 40 ft racing boats.
1. back button exits app without prompting exit menu; menu would be helpful.
2. Wind speed: I would prefer to set wind speed with up/down button instead of rotate; it’s too sensitive. Point into Wind is perfect the way it is.
3. Race countdown; would be nice to be able to enter the minutes instead of presets or have both.
4. Map: would be great to have the option to view a map while using the app.
Again, excellent app.

Thanks for the review.
1. Is fixed in the next version(3.3.2), I'm waiting to finish one more modification before I roll it out.
2. I need to have a think about this one, It's probably a 1 or the other type deal.
3. I'm not sure about this one but will have a look into it.

great app for sailors (windsurf, kite & sailboat for me). Start counter includes time and distance (great !). A great addition for yacht racing would be Laylines management (all data is there). With the same simple logic as for WayPoints screens... Feel free to let me know if any help needed (calculation, features...). Many thanks !

Thanks....... You need to send me more info about the laylines thing, I'm not sure what info exactly your after

Very well-created application. The creator must be a good kitesurfer and Computer Engineer

Thanks..... but it is amazing what you can teach yourself from home using internet guides :)

bonjour, l'application fonctionne bien et répond aux besoins. Mais l'enregistrement s'interrompt régulièrement, je suppose à cause de ma combinaison qui vient au contact de l'écran de ma montre.
Comment peut on remédier à ce problème et bloquer l'écran pour éviter des arrêts intempestifs ?

Hi, This problem is faced by all people sailing with a touch screen watch. I believe you can disable the touch screen in your watch settings somehow ?
That is my only advice.

Great app that does almost everything I’ve been wanting. The ability to change ‘VMG into the wind’ to ‘VMG towards a waypoint’ (VMC) would be a helpful feature for those who sail in a constantly changing breeze like me :)

No worries - if you flick between the main screen ( wind ) , and the NAV screen ( waypoint selected ), you will do just that - change from VMG into wind, to VMG towards the waypoint
27. februar 2021 | Version 3.3.1
Excellent app, I use it for every windsurf session now! For the speed racers out there, would it be possible to also display the max speed over the last leg on top of max overall speed and current speed? Sorry if it’s already there I couldn’t find it.
15. februar 2021 | Version 3.3.1
Works like a breeze. Clean app that does what it promises to do.
16. januar 2021 | Version 3.3.1
Best app ever for Kite racing..
Thanks... Love it
13. oktober 2020 | Version 3.2.2
It's a great app and easy to use. To me the best app for sailors. Very usefull.
I even used the polar log function. It took a little time to find out but Nicholas just helps you quick with useful instructions. Name the file something like ED0B3289 (de name of the app on your watch without '.txt') and you're all set. Thanx Nicholas!
9. oktober 2020 | Version 3.2.2
Is it possible to use the countdown timer without pinging the start line? Sometimes it's just not doable in a foiling vehicle.
24. december 2020, NicholasFinch
Fixed - Version 3.3, click back button if on the screen that says set start A and it will skip direct to the race countdown Hack
4. oktober 2020 | Version 3.2.2
Love it. Using it to track and run my beachcat. Recorded nicely, but my Garmin GPS on my watch (Fenix 5S Plus) doesn't seem to quite jibe with Google earth on the after plots. Elsewhere, Nicholas seems to have built something of a full fledged tactical sail/racing app into a Garmin quite effectively. Love it! Thanks a ton. ChuckC

Excellent app, This should be native app on every Garmin watch.

28. august 2020 | Version 2.6.1
Now the best sail, kite and windsurf app
29. februar 2020 | Version 2.4.0
Outstanding for sailors, much appreciated.
5. marts 2020, NicholasFinch
Thanks, - as always, if you have any suggestions pass them too me.
Next on my agenda, is to enable a polar plot on the watch face, that will appear at the end of the session as you exit.
26. februar 2020 | Version 2.4.0
Fantastic functionality, great support from developer - the most useful app for sail racing on a Garmin watch
26. januar 2020 | Version 1.2.0
I would not have purchased a Quatix 5, if I had not learned about this app!
The app is proving to be very versatile and intuitive. It is a useful tool for quick assessment of boat position relative to marks/waypoints. Helps to determine position relative to laylines and whether one is on the favored tack or gybe relative to the waypoint. Updates seem to be coming fast and furious.
27. januar 2020, NicholasFinch
Thanks - Checkout version 1.3, it has the beeps added.
23. januar 2020 | Version 1.1.0
Great app and super support from developer!
