103 RE (Racing Elite) is a double-scale compass that allow sailors to read the actual course on port and starboard tack from the helmsman’s normal position at the rail.
The double scale is divided into a green starboard and a red port scale where the figures correspond on port and starboard tack since the scales are separately offset by +/- 40° from top scale. In this way, you only have to remember one figure. This is a great benefit in triangular course sailing, where racers need to watch the wind shifts, rather than their actual course. The top scale also enables course-reading on downwind or checking the start line position. All this makes the 103RE perfect for dinghy racing.
