What is with all the hype surrounding the Prism?

 

The Prism is more than just a geometrical shape, and it has class sailors going insane to get their hands on this compass. The eager anticipation has only been heightened by the 6-month delay in availability after an official product launch in January this year. However, by the time you read this blog post, the prism will finally be available to order online.

“The best distance-to-line tool ever”, the Velocitek ProStart boasts; compact, distraction-free and easy-to-use.

Velocitek – a leading performance sailing company – has created a device that is truly unique. The ProStart, suitable for dinghies and sports boats, is the result of customer feedback that demanded a straightforward, dedicated ‘distance to line’ device. Consequently, the ‘distance to line’ measurement is displayed on the digital interface in metres, updating twice a second, and depicted in large numbers that are easy to read at a quick glance.

 

We are constantly reporting on the latest innovations in the marine industry which offer weight savings whilst, at the same time, increasing safety factors. The result: lighter, faster, safer and more exciting sailing.
