Complication Spotlight: The Regatta Timer

Complication Spotlight: The Regatta Timer

Postby koimaster » May 15th 2017, 10:27pm

At its core, a regatta or yacht timer operates as a reverse chronograph. Before a race, yacht crews must consider factors like wind, opponent positions, speed, and the established imaginary line that marks the starting point. With this is mind, a pre-race time interval can be calculated and tracked by counting down with a regatta timer. The goal then involves positioning the vessel as close to the starting line as possible by the time your countdown reaches zero. Therefore, the crew that best utilizes their time will position close to the line and get the best start.

Timex has a yacht timer not a bad looking watch for under $200?
