Ideal preparation for regattas or yacht races
The yacht timer helps you to prepare for the start of a regatta or yacht race. Unlike racing or sprinting, for example, it is not possible to reach maximum speed on command in a yacht race. Therefore, the boats used in yacht races allow 5 or 10 minutes extra time to "get going" or pick up speed.
Featuring audible signal
The yacht timer helps to determine the start time by counting down 10 minutes, and emitting a beep for each minute that has elapsed. In the last 10 seconds before the end of the time, the watch beeps every second. When it reaches zero, the watch emits three beeps to indicate the end of the 10 minute period.
