Great comments from Arnaud Boissières

18th of february 2008


537 km far away from the Trinité sur mer, where the SPI OUEST FRANCE will take place from March the 20th to the 24th, famous sailors are training seriously in Arcachon!

Cali, alias Arnaud Boissières, skipper of the 60 feets Akena Verandas is also training in Winter on the small Akena Verandas, an Open 750!

JB Bitaly, owner of the Open 750 named Evinrude, sailed for the first time with its new SC100, and Cali tested one SC200 for the first time! On such a training, with speed tests, both skippers considered our devices as a great help!

In such light winds, the information of SPEED and VMG is really useful to be aware of boat speed decreasing period and allow the crew to react faster!

The GPS Track of Arnaud this last Sunday.

Saturday and Sunday allow to the Team NAUTEEK to keep on testing and validating the new Firmware with embedded waypoints and tracks. Even on triangular races, the new information about Waypoints looks really useful!

Follow the sailing project of Arnaud and his technical team on : Akena verandas web site.

NAUTEEK, partner of Fabien Delahaye on Port de Caen Ouistreham Open 750

18th of February 2008


Thanks to the technical partnership we find with him for 2008, Fabien, famous and serious racer on 470 and Open 750, gives us his technical feedback about our SC200. NAUTEEK needs to be close to such serious skipper to keep on testing and designing new innovative features on your devices.

Thanks to the feedback of our team : Damien Seguin, Bruno Jourdren, Fabien Delahaye.... and their comments your device is in continuous firmware development to propose you a better tactical speedo, easy to use and pertinent to race with it!

The next new firmware will also propose new short cuts for quick access to the starting line settings and a new timer synchronization to the closest full minutes.

The crew of the Port de Caen Ouistreham Open 750 took part to the 2nd training at la Trinité sur mer on last 8th and 9th of February.

Fabien Delahaye made a nice result thanks to good tactical decisions and the help of his SC200. He was directly sailing against famous skipper as Marc Guillemot or Pascal Bidegorry who are training on Open 750 either.

More information about the sailing project of Fabien and his crew on : web site.

J80 training on Crouesty.

06th of February


NAUTEEK was at Le Crouesty last Saturday and took part in a special J80 training dedicated to the starts.

After a technical analysis on morning, many trainings were proposed on the afternoon to work the following points:

-Timing

-Placement

-Strategy

-Ability to start fast

-Stress

Get the distance of the boat from the starting line, get the time needed to launch its boat, get the distance we can sail on the last 30 seconds before the start, get the time needed for a tack for a gybe... All this information are easier to get with a SC200!

NAUTEEK proposed to different crews to test the distance to the starting line feature embedded in the SC200 and get a nice feedback!

Next feature under development : NAUTEEK complete trips and waypoints management

December 2007


Handheld GPS tracers are really not the more convenient devices to use as onboard navigation instruments.
The standard tracer feature looks often really nice, comfortably sitted in a chair, but unfortunately not visible anymore onboard, because of the pitch and the roll of the boat.
Batteries life (it is worth to have spare only just for a week end of racing), waterproofness of the connectors or of the batteries compartment, no fixing possibilities, small screen, low contrast, small digits are the main drawbacks of these devices.

Moreover planning a race trip for your coastal race is often a hard time: on plenty of devices, the poor user interface sucks to create a waypoint, to rename it, to add a new trip....
So that most of the time anyone of us only use the GOTO function and keeps many of unnamed waypoint # 1, # 2 ... in the memory of our GPS, because nothing intuitive exists to manage our data!

Finally I don't have to explain you how painful it is to grab from your jacket your handheld GPS to check if you are sailing your best on the next waypoint. When you try to read it, then you are not concentrated to your genakersheet or your tiller!
Before NAUTEEK SC devices were available, every one of us was unfortunately used to do with.

We are soon finishing a hard technical development to integrate to your SC devices a full trips and waypoints management specifically dedicated to be used on coastal races.

Before the race :

Thanks to the Nauteek USB cable, similarly as you download tracks from your SC on your PC, you will be able to import/export all your waypoints and trips from your PC to your SC and so on.

The innovation comes from a really intuitive free software developed by our team (running only on PC for the moment) allowing you to deal with your waypoints and trips.
This software, thanks to the user interface of your PC keypad will offer you the opportunity to easily:

- Create a new waypoint, edit and modify a waypoint
- Create a new trip in adding an existing waypoint and labeling this waypoint in this trip as Port board or Star board depending on what is written in the Notice of Race.
- Delete a waypoint, delete a trip, edit a trip, modify a trip, save a trip
- Create and save waypoints and trips files on your PC to help you to manage your sailing database according to different sailing spot for example.
- Exchange waypoints and trips files with your friends.

Storage capacity of your SC will be up to 750 waypoints and 150 trips ( 10 waypoints per trip)!


Click here to open a screen shot of our development version of NauteekWaypointManager, which will be available in French and in English language of course!

The day of the race:

The new user interface of your SC and without any use of laptop, will also let you the flexibility you need in order to :

- Add a new waypoint because of the last update of the Notice of Race
- Modify a waypoint
- Modify a trip
- Create a new trip
- Save a waypoint to boat.

During the race:

Just fix your NAUTEEK on its bracket or on a flat panel of your boat and START the trip you need.
In a new Costal Race Menu will be displayed the following informations additively to the tactical informations you already have :

- Bearing to next waypoint
- Bearing Offset to the next waypoint
- Distance to the next waypoint
- Velocity to next waypoint

During all your trip, the name of the waypoint used for calculation will be displayed on a regularly way, as the side starboard or port board! You will also have all the data constantly under your eyes to make your tactical choice!

When you will reach your next waypoint and function of the proximity of this waypoint (you will be able to fix the proximity distance yourself), the waypoint will be automatically detected and the information displayed will now tell you about your future waypoint! You will also be able to force the waypoint detection just by pressing the MODE button!

Trust us to work on our best to provide you these new features before March 2008, and note that all SC devices purchased before March 2008 will be compliant to this innovative upgrade.

Feel free to tell us what features you would like to see from us in the future :
It is not too late!

As for the results: Francis Ferrari on a Bimare X2 takes a 2nd place in interserie (4,4,4). He was testing a SC200 for the first time. He said « Due to lack of time, we only used the speedo, compass and race timer functions that were great. »

Also worthy to note a fine performance of the Nauteek F18 boat which signs a 3rd place on one of the race.
