    Re: Racing Watches?

    Be careful about class rules when choosing equipment that mounts on the
    boat. Some classes (J24 comes to mind) don't allow any fixed
    electronics, or at least didn't the last time I raced in that class.
    If they are permitted, mast head wind instruments are much better than
    handheld. A KVH Sailcomp compass has a starting countdown timer that is
    quite handy IMHO.
