The superb Racegeek D10 mast instrument is now available through Ceilidh Composite Technologies B.V. With its clear backlit display and intuitive user interface the Racegeek D10 guides you round the racecourse. Featuring built in GPS, compass and simple integration with existing NMEA 0183 or NMEA 2000 systems it provides a great solution for boat data at the mast.
The system can be used as a repeater, showing data which is available throughout the NMEA setup on your boat, but it is far more than that. The D10 offers full GPS integration with distance to startline, while switching directly through to the data you need after the start. With WIFI connection to the iPhone/Android app the D10 can store routes and waypoints to guide you around the buoys. For those racing on Windward/Leeward courses the systems ‘sees’ the windward mark and remembers it location for you (without having to push any buttons!). For further information please see the racegeek.ie website. Ceilidh has a system available for demonstration purposes and will naturally be offering a suitable carbon fibre mast bracket solution for the D10. For further information please do not hesitate to contact us.
The Ceilidh Composite Technologies OK Dinghy mast dominated the recent OK Dinghy World Championships 2018 held in Warnemünde, Germany. With André Budzien (GER) taking first place after a very closely fought event (Taking Gold with the tiebreaking last race win) our masts were used by 7 of the top 10. The mast has been developed to suit each sailmakers requirements which helped to ensure 3 different sailmakers were represented in the top 10. This year has seen the introduction of our PRO mast, which with added High Modulus material to modify the response of the mast in wind and waves. While this mast suits the more physical sailor our standard mast proved also to be a race winner.
Having been able to keep our advice retail prices constant for the last year we are unfortunately faced with a significant price increase of our raw materials for the following year. We regret to inform our customers that as of 1st February 2018 all prices will be increasing by up to 5%. All current orders (pre 1st February) will be supplied at the offered prices.
With a solid series counting a 4th place as his worst non discardable result Jim Hunt (GBR) has won the OK Dinghy World Championships 2016. Having joined forces with Ceilidh Composite Technologies early in 2015 Jim has consistently produced winning sails to fit our masts. Congratulations to all those who were involved in the development.
Congratulations to Pieter Jan Postma (NED) on his Bronze medal at a challenging Finn Gold Cup recently. Sailing with our latest design of the Finn mast PRO his superior boat speed helped in the shifty conditions at the event. Also our congratulations to Rafa Trujillo (ESP) who won every race at the Finn Masters World Championships in Torbole sailing with our PRO design. Vladimir Krutskikh (RUS) was a worthy second with a HIT Mast Classic scoring 2 points more than Trujillo over the series.
The new design introduces major changes to the bend curve and dynamic working of the mast. While still in the test phase, the results show that the HIT mast PRO designed and manufactured by Ceilidh Composite Technologies is performing as planned, giving more control upwind with added power downwind.
