Sail-World.com : New Nexus RaceBOX tactical race software for recreational sailor
New Nexus RaceBOX tactical race software for recreational sailor

'RaceBox External'   

The new RaceBOX gives the competitive advantage of Nexus race software in an affordable, compact and robust package.

Interfacing with Nexus instruments via the Nexus Network, the RaceBOX provides sailors with a plethora of analytical information to existing Nexus instruments. A micro-processor facilitates processing abilities that were only previously only available with a stand-alone computer.

Replacing a fragile onboard computer, the racer can now load polar diagrams directly into the processor from a SD card or USB. Calculations of Polar or Target Boat Speed are then displayed by Nexus instruments where they are most useful – on deck. Coupled with GPS it will also give time-to-burn and line bias on the start. Furthermore the RaceBOX records data to the memory cards that can be easily removed for post-race download and analysis.

Dean Barker, America’s Cup skipper and co-owner of Nexus, comments 'The RaceBOX gives tactical tools to the recreational club racer that have in the past been an exclusive reserve of the grand prix or luxury yacht. It is light and easy to integrate; the Nexus RaceBOX will give you the competitive edge for a fraction of the price of a laptop or a stand-alone start line timer.'

The RaceBOX is available this week through the Nexus dealer network and direct to yacht builders.

RaceBox Internal -    
Nexus Marine specializes in the design and development of marine instrumentation and navigation equipment for racing and cruising sailors. Created in late 2006 as the result of a demerger from the Silva Group, Nexus has a long established pedigree of creating durable and reliable instruments for a wide range of marine applications. 2007 heralded the introduction of the NX instrumentation suite for sports boats and smaller cruisers. The NXR range is for large race boats and super yachts and the NX2 completes the range targeted at the performance yachtsman. Nexus instruments are already the choice of many major yacht builders including Salona and are the exclusive supplier of electronics for the Tour de France á la Voile M34 race boat, the first J/111 and ‘Vertigo’ a 62m ketch recently launched in NZ by Alloy Yachts'. Nexus also manufactures a range of marine equipment including autopilots, VHF radios and binoculars and distributes worldwide Silva marine compasses.
