Last Chance to Win a Cyclops Marine Load Sensor Worth €1,250+

by Cyclops Marine 4 Mar 06:31 PST

Champions from Olympic classes, to Ocean Race competitors, to America's Cup sailors depend on Cyclops Marine load sensors to provide precision load data: at the dock (get set up to optimal rig settings); on the water (see live, dynamic rig loads and get feedback from adjustments in-race and while training); and in post-sail analysis (build up a database of fast settings in all conditions, using analytics software to get better and better).

Cyclops Marine load sensors help you get the edge on the competition, and keep it.

Some who know this better than most are 2019 J/70 World Champions Paul Ward and his team who use a smarttune load sensor from Cyclops Marine on their forestay.

Cyclops have teamed up with Paul to offer you the chance to get in on the action and sail like a World Champion.

All you have to do...

All you have to do to win a load sensor suited to your boat is tell Cyclops Marine what peak forestay load (to the nearest KG) was logged by Paul Ward's smartfittings manager app on December 20th 2020, when he was training on the Solent against Martin Dent of Jelvis in 14-18 Knots. (That's his highest load reading throughout the day).

Entries welcome from anywhere across the globe!

The closest guess will win a sensor (judged by Cyclops Marine to be suitable for their boat), there are also four Cyclops Marine belts up for grabs to the next four closest entries.

Entries have now been open for well over a week and the closing date is fast approaching. Register your guess on the Cyclops Marine website before 11.59 pm on 7th March (GMT). Full terms and conditions are available on the entry page.
