The second release in our new range of dynamic tuning guides has arrived! After the release of our J/111 guide last month we received several requests from Beneteau owners for us to make our First 40 guide the second release. Well… we listened!
Using the expertise and feedback from the Class leaders using our sensors, along with analytics software we have generated target forestay load values for different wind conditions—essentially eliminating the variable of sail trim. Load values relevant to both First 40 and First 40.7.
Up until now, it has taken crew members some time to make sense of the new data provided by smarttune (sensors for standing rigging), building up a bank of numbers for reference and reacting to the live loads displayed onboard to learn which settings produce results on the water.
Tuning guides offer verified figures, making it easier than ever to get the most out of your boat, and Cyclops sensors from day one of using them onboard. A simple guide to success, this is likely to have a widespread impact on performance in classes equipped with a guide, making a load sensor a quick ticket to moving up the fleet.
Beneteau First 40/40.7 Dynamic Tuning Guide
We will continue to work on our range of tuning guides in the coming weeks and months, with the aim of allowing as many sailors as possible equipped with Cyclops technology to start moving up the fleet, emulating the settings of those at the front.
Don’t get left behind. Find out when your classes’ guide will be released and discover what Cyclops sensors can do for your performance. If you want to request a guide for a particular class please contact us and we will do everything we can to help you get the most from our technology.
