The Raymarine Wireless Micronet Race Master is the ultimate compass and windshift indicator.
The Race Master System offers you all of the benefits of the Race Master but can comes with a Micronet Hull Transmitter to provide boat speed and depth data. The ultimate tactical race compass and windshift indicator. Its two-tier display shows your heading, how far you are above or below the mean course, and how much you are being headed or lifted. It will enable you to establish quickly and easily which is the favoured end of the start line, and will help you sail the shortest distance to the windward mark. Downwind, you can see how far off dead downwind you are, and when you should gybe for optimal VMG.
The System can then be further extended to allow the addition of Wind and GPS information as well as compatibility with the complete range of Micronet Displays. The system is also supplied with a Solar Panel to power the Hull Transmitter and a Triducer with flush fitting.

An understanding of climate change’s effects on the environment has become commonplace and grows every day, but one researcher from Florida State University is looking to answer a new question: What are climate change’s effects on people’s health? In one of the first studies of its kind, Chris Uejio, an assistant professor at FSU, and a team of researchers studied how climate change can affect the roughly 20 million Americans (according to the Environmental Protection Agency) who consume untreated drinking water on a daily basis. Because climate forecasts are predicting higher rainfall rates over the next few decades, coming down in intense storms, Uejio said those flashes could cause flare-ups in waterborne illnesses.Read More
We put together this infographic on data buoys for our Spring 2017 edition of the Environmental Monitor ( PDF available online ). Organizations across the globe use data buoy systems to observe and monitor atmospheric and oceanographic conditions in remote locations. Measurements range from air pressure, humidity, wind speed and direction to wave height, water temperature, dissolved oxygen and other water quality parameters. With the help of national and international networks, reliable and comprehensive data sets are made available for research and public safety.Read More
The Spring 2017 Environmental Monitor is on the way to subscribers this month. Our quarterly print editions feature the best of the Monitor's coverage from the past few months with added photos, graphics, updates and the latest monitoring gear. If you don't have a print subscription, you can sign up for free. If you'd like to peruse some of our past editions, check out our print archive . In this edition, we showcase a number of projects that are truly advancing the way data are gathered in the environmental monitoring field. This includes a look at the first-ever deployment of the ESPniagara in Lake Erie, a device for real-time microcystin measurements that is so advanced its makers say it is essentially a robot.Read More
