Finally, a dinghy wind indicator that won't get caught when those inevitable close calls occur. When that pesky windward boat is crossing in front of you with their mainsheet out and looking for trouble the C-Vane's unique bracket design will simply brush off any danger by allowing the sheet to smoothly slide down the bracket, with just a quick spin of the vane and no snagging. What remains is an attached, fully functional wind indicator that's still in one piece. What's even better, it works well too (Weird!) The combination of a flexible rubber mounting bracket with the durable Velcro strap ensures a dependable steadfast grip to your mast; and the low friction vane, gives highly sensitive, accurate readings. Designed to be mounted at eye-level around the lower mast.

Works as described. Just make sure the arm adjuster is set correctly to allow the vane to move easily yet be tight enough so the wind doesn't blow it out of the mount.
