Windicator range launches in Europe


Barton Marine is launching the Windicator range into Europe for 2023.  

A mechanical wind direction indicator for sailing dinghies and yachts, the Windicator offers three dinghy and two offshore racing yacht versions. Each of the dinghy models is individually optimised for Optimists, Lasers, Aeros and Toppers, but also fits on a range of other sailing dinghies including RS and Hartley craft. It can also be used for land sailing and works well with the Blokart class.

Windicator is manufactured with a durable construction, while keeping weight to a minimum (22-63.5g). It’s said to be 100 per cent accurate in two knots of wind.

The range has two offshore yacht racing models designed for yachts between four to eight metres and for those over eight metres.  

“The Windicator is considered the best wind direction indicator by leading sailors and riggers without question,” says Jeff Webber, Barton Marine‘s chief commercial officer. “Its simplicity and accuracy will help any sailor trim sails and hone their heading for an all-important advantage when racing on the water

“With Barton having recently been involved with the Land Sailing and Blokart National Championships in North America, we know they are also perfect for racing off the water as well.”
