Wind-Indicators with a Gimbal and Magna-Float Technology
Olfree Sailing Announces a Breakthrough of Major Proportions
Welcome to Olfree Sailing’s Twenty-First Century of Advanced Sailing.
We’ve simply built the most advanced Wind-Indicator System on the market today. For the first time ever, racers have the ability to tell wind direction using a balanced gimbal attached to a high tech wind-indicator.
We've simply built the most advanced Wind-Indicator System on the market today.
With the help from the ARC Rocket Design Team, the boys from UCSD utilized CAD drawings along with 3D printed models and testing to help design a gimbaled wind-indicator that allows our Wind-Indicator to always remain parallel to the water, thus allowing correct wind direction readings at all times.
The gimbal makes sure that your wind-indicator is always giving you the correct readings because our Wind-Indicator always remains parallel to the water when the boat is heeling over at any angle. The Olfree Advantage Wind-Indicator is, without doubt, the most advanced wind-indicator on the market today. Olfree’s patented Magna-Float Technology allows perfect and precise wind direction accuracy. It’s just like floating on air. Now racers and all sailors have the ability to tell wind-direction using a balanced gimbal attached to a high tech wind-indicator to help fine tune their sailing ability and sailing knowledge.

“This is a great Wind Indicator. A bird decided to retire my old one, and I’ve enjoyed this new one very much. It took only a couple minutes to assemble then it attaches very easily with Velcro on the mast of my sailboat. This is the best Wind Indicator I’ve found and if I ever need a new one, I’ll definitely buy this one again.”
