Tacktick’s Micro Compass will be used by the International Cadet Class Association after they voted to accept the use of electronic compasses in their class rules.

The decision means that Cadet sailors around the world will, for the first time be able to experience the benefits of using Tacktick’s Micro Compass.


The Cadet is a two person racing and training dinghy for sailors up to seventeen years of age. With its wide distribution over more than 18 countries and four continents, the Cadet is a truly international racing dinghy. The boat provides a three sail experience where the helm and the crew must work together as a team to obtain the best results.

Tacktick’s solar powered Micro Compass, is the world’s leading digital dinghy compass. Incorporating a compass, tactical scale and race timer in a robust, fully waterproof, solar powered digital instrument, the twin screens ensure clear, readable digits in line of sight. The compass is now class legal for the International Cadet Class.

The Micro Compass is ideal for sailors wanting to improve their performance; the compass gives you all the data needed to react to the smallest wind shifts. The Micro Compass is light weight and easy to read and is available with a range of brackets to fit most boats.
