Sporty with a large face and buttons for ease of use while racing. It comes in two different color faces with carbon reinforced ABS plastic and sports a stainless steel case back and a flexible TPU strap.
Is it a Sailing Watch? a Sailing Timer? Dinghy Deck Hardware? ..Answer: All of the Above. So here you have it, the Gill Regatta Race Timer!
As far as sailing watches go, three words come to mind when thinking about this bad boy; Big, Huge, and Versatile. All of this combined makes for a great sailing watch for any type of racing from dinghies to big boats.
The big display allows for quick glancing instead of a prolonged, squinty time check. The huge digital numbers and five preset countdown sequences make it a pleasure to use out on the water.
Front facing large buttons make for easy operation, as well as preventing accidental side button pushing. (Side Note: We really like the green buttons on the black version because they're easier to see at a quick glance.)
It's versatile snap in cradle for the watch is contoured on the underside to make for a comfortable wrist watch, but more importantly its provides a nice curved surface for attaching to a dinghy mast.
The cradle also has four screw mounting holes so the watch can be mounted to a bulkhead. For great versatility and great timekeeping, this one’s a keeper!
