Having a back-up wind instrument is a good idea for big-boat sailing; for dinghy racing, having a wind meter can make a huge difference, especially in challenging, shifty conditions. Speedtech Instruments’s new WindMate wind/weather meters can take a number of wind and weather readings (model depending), including windspeed, temperature, wind chill, wind direction, and cross-wind and head/tail wind, plus 48-hour history, weather reports, and barometric pressure. All units have a tripod fitting for more accurate readings and a durable case. Four models; from $60. Speedtech Instruments, 703-430-8055, www.speedtech.com
