Velocitek Performance Sailing Instruments

Velocitek - ProStart and Speedpuck - Overview


Velocitek builds high-performance GPS enabled yachting instruments. Their devices are designed to give you the critical tactical information you need, when you need it. Velocitek designers have worked hard over several generations of products to produce easy to use instruments that help you keep your head out of the boat and in the race.
Velocitek Speedpuck Sailing GPS
If you race sailboats, the benefits of an accurate speedometer are probably already fairly obvious to you. Even still, you might not sail with a speedo because you can’t be bothered to drill holes in your hull and wire-up a paddlewheel transducer. Or maybe you already have a through-hull speedo but you’re sick of the transducer getting fouled and you’re never quite sure if the instrument is properly calibrated. The award winning SpeedPuck is completely self contained and can be installed in seconds, without tools. Instead of using a paddlewheel, the SpeedPuck calculates your speed by measuring the Doppler shift in GPS signals to provide you with an updated reading every half-second. The SpeedPuck never needs to be calibrated and maintains uniform accuracy at all speeds.

The ProStart is specifically designed from the ground up to give you the easiest, most accurate distance to line measurements ever. Setting the line is as simple as telling your crew to press the boat button as you sail by the RC and then the pin button as you sail by the pin. Once you’ve pinged both ends of the line, the ProStart uses the latest WAAS-augmented GPS technology to spit out an accurate distance to line measurement every half-second.
