Technology has incredibly evolved along the past few years and the value of the “data” has taken an important spot within sailors. As a result, many companies such as Calypso Instruments have developed ultrasonic wind meters which offer key information to the sailors to make important and decisive movements: which way do they turn the wheel or tiller to make the meter get to the desired place among others.
Whether you are a professional or amateur navigator, measuring wind speed and direction is absolutely a key factor to improve your sailing !
The handheld portable wind meter and the ultra low power ultrasonic wind meter from Calypso Instruments
deliver high quality and accurate wind speed and direction data, allowing the user to measure the wind speed and direction in real time and connect it to a datalogger/display (Ultra Low Power) or connect it via bluetooth to the phone or Garmin watch with a free app (Portable wind meter).
Thanks to its small size, lightweight and robustness it is a perfect solution for getting wind speed and direction data while sailing.

"The Calypso Marine Instruments Ultrasonic Portable wind sensor is now fully supported by Tactiqs. Now you can create a complete wireless systems for your wind sensor."
"Dear Calypso. I saw you at the UK Dinghy Show in March and got an Ultrasonic Portable from you. I was slightly sceptical as I sail a dinghy and wondered how I would use it en route. I riveted the bracket to the top of the mast where it would get clean air and used it for the first time post-lockdown on a sail in Suffolk. I was impressed with the kit. The app worked well and I found it really nice to know wind strength and direction for my sail planning. The mapping was very accurate, but I hadn't allowed tracking record so wasn't able to see where I had been. Just need to find a way of carrying smartphone and battery pack in one case to have it on permanently
Well done Calypso".
"Just mounted and the Ultrasonic anemometer and connected it with the SAILMON MAX. After some adjustments, and making a bracket to mount it on the nav top light, it really works like a charm. Very accurate. No more wires and no more damage due to birds sitting on the windmeter and breaking it".
