Yacht Racing and Navigation
Yacht racing navigation is not about knowing where you are, but using all available tools to develop strategy and manage risk to get where you want to go as fast and as efficiently as possible.
Campbell is a specialist grand prix racing navigator with vast experience across yachts, teams and locations that will enhance performance at any level.
Performance data analysis
Using the most powerful tools available - KND - we can data mine, analyse and report on your real sailing data to:
Refine calibration for quality instrument data on deck
Qualify actual logged data and develop your 'feeling' for your yacht
Deepen your understanding of your yachts performance & refine setup
Instruments don't lie to you, they simply deliver bad information if they are not set up accurately
If poorly set up, instrument output is misleading leading to poor decision making and OTW frustration
Campbell help and guide you, but most importantly work with your team to understand what your system is capable of and techniques to get the best out of what you have.
From sailing with you to improve your systems performance and calibrations to analysis of your logged data files using the most powerful tools available
Using some very powerful tools and highly refined weather and current models, we can:
Develop a passage plan for a safe and comfortable voyage, including fuel consumption estimates
Study in depth historic weather and advanced weather and current modelling to develop a race strategy
Accurate weighing and measurement of your yacht will give you confidence that your IRC rating is accurate and can help give you a clear picture of where you can optimise your racing performance.
Your sails typically start shrinking from the first time they are hoisted, take advantage of this and have your sails remeasured to reduce to rated areas.
