Well, by now there are a number of interesting replies when reading both threads.
Thank you for that.
Regarding the reason why a wind instrument might be nice on a cat you are right.It adds safety
, the cat does hardly heel over and when it's not a high performance boat accelerates moderately.
Once had a ugly situation when on a beam reach with a kite up.
The wind increased steadily without us (tired crew!) noticing early on.
Then we had to luff up to avoid a shallow area and suddenly we felt we had far to much sailarea up.
We just managed to get the kite down again in the last moment.
Apart from that Ap steering
with wind is nice.
I like this idea with the Arduino and the Bluetooth instrument proposed in the other thread.
