Through their flagship products smartlink and smarttune, manufacturers of wireless load sensors Cyclops Marine offer easy-to-install, highly accurate, easy-to-use load sensing solutions which give sailors boat tuning insights, live on-the-water feedback, and intelligent data for use with sailing analytics software.

Cyclops is a performance-obsessed technology and innovations business, where the wheels are always turning to find new ways to squeeze everything out of data, and to translate it into competitive ascendancy on the water. One way to guarantee this is by putting that data in the hands of experts who know, above all else, how to harness it and unlock a sailor's full potential through solid, measurable performance insights.

Thus, Cyclops has partnered with world-leading sailors and coaches to assemble a 'Global Performance Team' of expert consultants that use Cyclops data as part of their process:

Three time World Champion in the highly competitive Etchells and 5.5 Metre classes, Andrew "Dog" Palfrey spent three years as Head Coach for the Artemis America's Cup Team in the 34th America's Cup. He's worked with World Champion teams in several one-design keelboat classes - Farr40's, Farr30's, RC44's, Etchells and the Star. He also helped guide an 18ft skiff team to success at the highest level.

Michele Ivaldi has won: a 470 European Championship; a Junior 470 World Championship; 2000 Louis Vuitton with Luna Rossa; a Match race world Championship in 2005; the America's Cup in 2010 as part of Oracle Team; 3 times Mini Maxi 72 World Champion (Momo and Cannonball); 2 times RC44 World Champion (Ceeref and Bronenosec); 2020 Swan 50 World Champion (Hatari). He's been the team manager or project manager of: Artemis TP52, Oracle TP52, Bronenosec TP52 and RC44, Ceeref RC44, Aleph RC44, Momo Mini Maxi 72, Cannonball Mini Maxi 72, Hatari Swan50. He has America's Cup experience with Luna Rossa in 2000, 2003 & 2007, and with Oracle in 2010.

Experienced campaigners with astounding resumes, a single session with these pros can turn your season around, or take it to the next level. Add to that the tools that they have at their disposal—namely Cyclops sensors on every part of the boat and the most advanced coaching & analytics software available, and the result is a formidable level of expertise.

A roaming team of sailors and coaches who understand the benefits of Cyclops load sensors better than anyone else, Cyclops' 'Global Performance Team' are available to help you understand the finer points of load measurement and analytics. Whether you have experience using load sensors, or have questions about how you could benefit by adding them to your rig, Cyclops' Global Performance Team are the best-equipped individuals to offer load-sensing advice and have the ability to supply Cyclops equipment with a worldwide reach.
