MAX on new McConaghy’s Vortex Pod Racer
Australian-based high-performance composite boat-maker McConaghy Boats recently launched its new foiling dinghy: the Vortex Pod Racer. The Vortex pod racer has been specifically designed to make high-speed foiling both safe and accessible to a larger audience. Sailmon is proud to provide the electronics onboard with a triple MAX in the cockpit. Chief Design Kalle Coster: ''High-speed performance sailing requires reliable data. A perfect fit for MAX thanks to the best GPS speed on the market with a 25hz update.''
