Spinlock to launch brand new Rig-Sense at RYA Suzuki Dinghy Show 2016

We are delighted to announce that Spinlock, located at stand B80, will be launching its innovative Rig-Sense rig tuning tool at this year’s RYA Suzuki Dinghy Show, taking place at Alexandra Palace, London, from 05-06 March 2016.

Watch this video to find out more about Rig-Sense.

Spinlock are one of more than 150 exhibitors attending the RYA Suzuki Dinghy Show, covering everything from boat retailers to sail specialists, insurance companies, class associations, Recognised Training Centres and sailing clubs.

Spinlock’s Rig-Sense is a new rig tuning tool developed for consistent and repeatable measurement of loads on wire and fibre. Compact, durable, lightweight and easy to handle, Rig-Sense uses a composite leaf spring that is calibrated to output repeatable tensile load readings to a direct linear scale in kgs, rather than having to check and calculate loads on a complicated set of tables. With Rig-Sense you can quickly and reliably take your readings to compare and adjust if needed against base settings, before heading out on the water.

Spinlock CEO Chris Hill comments: “Rig-Sense’ joins our growing Sense range of data measuring tools. Sailors are becoming much more interested in measuring and capturing data to aid their performance, learning from time on the water to help improve long term performance. Rig-Sense offers a big improvement to the measurement of rig tension, making it simpler and easier for the sailor, and now coupled with the Rig-Sense App comes the ability to share and export data for later analysis with your team or sharing knowledge within a class.”
