Today, Raymarine is making a bold addition to the performance sailing market with the launch of the Alpha™ Series display, new Smart Wind™ Technology, and performance sailing upgrades to the LightHouse operating system for Axiom chartplotters.

This powerful combination of electronic charting, next-generation precision wind monitoring, and touchscreen tactical displays elevates the awareness of skippers through intuitive, dynamic sailing displays on both the chartplotter and the remote Alpha Series display.

Offering a new level of sailing intelligence thanks to Raymarine's ground-breaking Smart Wind Technology and RSW Series wind sensors, the newly designed RSW Series Wind sensors are intelligent self-calibrating sensors that deliver ultra-precise wind speed and direction measurements. Sailors can take advantage of advanced wind, speed, and polar calculations to make smarter race and performance sailing decisions when it matters most.

Grégoire Outters, General Manager at Raymarine said: "With an ever-evolving demand in the sailing sector for intuitive solutions, and with Raymarine holding rich heritage in sailing electronics with proven performance, it was a natural fit for us to offer new developments in this industry. The Alpha Series offers cutting-edge technology packed with powerful intelligence, providing sailors with market-leading sailing support."

The Alpha Series Displays

7- and 9-inch-high visibility tactical touchscreen instruments with a fully customizable dashboard and graphic displays to help you make smarter sailing decisions. Designed for helm or mast mounting, the Alpha Series is controlled and customized via touchscreen or remotely from a Raymarine Axiom chartplotter. The Alpha Series displays can be mounted in portrait or landscape and only require a single cable for data and power.

The RSW Series Wind Sensors

With sailing instrument experience spanning over 40 years, the RSW Wind sensors and Smart Wind Technology is the culmination of Raymarine's deep knowledge of precision wind measurement combined with 3D motion sensor. The result is a self-calibrating, AHRS-enhanced wind sensor that adapts to its environment to deliver precision wind data, including ultra-accurate true wind calculations.

Axiom with LightHouse OS Performance Sailing

Axiom with LightHouse 4.5 is the sailor's chartplotter. Simply select Sailing Performance from the LightHouse startup, and Axiom is transformed into a tactical sailing chartplotter with easy-to-use tools for lay line overlays, preloaded performance polars, and complete remote control and integration with Alpha Series instruments and RSW Series wind sensors.

Raymarine's new Performance Sailing products will be on display at the Newport International Boat Show in Newport Rhode Island and Cannes Yachting Festival in Cannes France. Whether you are a weekend club racer or an offshore solo adventurist, we invite you to experience the world's most powerful and intuitive sailing decision support solution available on the market.
