I got the opportunity to play with one at the London Boat Show on Saturday and they are very cool bits of kit.

I have asked my man if he can supply distributor details (UK based) if you can wait a day or so.

Just found out - TCS chandlery are selling them at the show but they are not on their website atm.

Make sure you pop by the Pelican Canoe stand (Next to the pool/pond bit) and thank Alex for the intro!!

I use 'Wind Meter' it uses the microphone and is amazingly accurate, we put it up against proper hand held unit that the hanglider bods use and there was little between them.
