Recently i noticed that it seems my windstation (Raymarine) is not showing the correct wind
angel(direction). I dont doubt the windspeed info, but the direction seems not right. When i am pointed as high as i can with my 40ft cat, (45-60 degrees) the actual wind
station shows me i am almost at 0 deg against the wind. This is particularly true when i am with my beam on port side, when i am with the beam on starboard, the angels shown on the windstation seem to be right. So, is there a way to say re-calibrate the wind station? This morning, got up the mast
and check the windvane
and connections, and all seem to be ok.
Anybody any suggestions/ideas...
The end of the day, sailing is all about feeling the wind in your face, but sometimes these electronica aids help alot.
All the best and fair winds..
