Clean Report

2016 will be remembered as the year when manufacturers finally realized they should be spending all their development money on Superyacht toys, but a handful of companies are working to improve high-performance sailing.  I sampled pretty much everything new from the 1500+ exhibitors at the METS show in a mostly sober state, and after all that, the winner was actually quite easy to choose.  After more than 8 years in development by the folks at Mich Desj’s “Mer Agitee”, the Electronic Tell-tale/Trim Control system is mostly ready for prime time, and whether we’re talking about significant average speed boosts for cruisers and racers , integrated sail control for bigger yachts and super/megas, huge efficiency increases for thousands of wind power producers, or potential stall-control systems for foilers, this thing could be game changing – and soon.  I grabbed a few minutes with Dimitri to show me how it works and where it’ll change the world; watch above and stay tuned for a more thorough breakdown of the show – and my European trip – later this week.
