608 Wind Sensors

Derived from the B&G Grand Prix level sensor, the 608 provides the accurate wind angle and speed data relied upon by sailors. The 608 sensor is NMEA 2000 compatible and contains a resistor so that it can act as one end of a NMEA 2000 backbone. 

  • High Accuracy
  • Race Proven Technology
  • Rugged Construction
  • Low Weight

Vertical Masthead Units (VHMU)

B&G's renowned Vertical Masthead Units (VHMUs) offer unparalelled accuracy for performance racing. Tested to the limits in the world's oceans, the vertical wand keeps the sensor clear of any upwash and wind disturbance effects of large square topped mainsails. When paired with 3D motion sensors below decks,  VHMUs can be calibrated to eliminate the effects of the boat's motion and offer data on the true wind conditions to be found at the masthead. 

  • Ocean Race Proven
  • High precision
  • High-Modulus Carbon spar
  • Lightweight and Robust Mast Cable
