Sailing Watches Keep You On Course. Whether racing a yacht or a dinghy or cruising on a leisure trip, OutdoorGB's range of Sailing Watches will help you keep on course on the water. For competition sailors, a good dedicated Sailing Watch will give you the countdown timer functions that will mean you hit the start line on time, every time.
Apart from adequate water resistance, a big display with large numerals sums up the most basic requirement for a Sailing Watch so you can see the information at a glance even in unstable and inclement conditions.
And when it comes to big displays, nothing beats the Optimum Time range of Sailing Watches including the iconic Big Yellow Sailing Watch (OS315) that made Optimum Time's name. The Big Yellow is now joined by a range of other Optimum Time sailing watches, all distinguished by their easy to use buttons on the front of the watch and their sailing-specific functions such as a Sync button for instant synchronisation if a gun is missed.
Among other very important features for sailors is a compass, and a digital compass is just one of the functions of Suunto's prestigious Yachtsman Sailing Watch. The Yachtsman also offers a sailing countdown timer, chronograph timing functions as well as barometer readings and temperature to put you one step ahead of any storm. The choice of durable luxury quality water-resistant leather strap or waterproof neoprene strap to underlines Suunto’s long-standing sailing pedigree. The Suunto Regatta is another in the Suunto sailing watch range which gives competition sailors the timing and navigation information they rely on to compete with the best.
