I searched the forum but could not find a good explanation why digital compass' are not class legal. The one thread I found mentioned that the digital compass is class legal in the Fin fleet. Seems to me that our fleet could move forward with this change. The cost of a Nexus plus fittings is in the same ballpark as a Tacktick micro, kids in particular are used to digital displays not analogue any more. Finally when you sail on other racing boats/dinghys digital tactical compass' are the norm - so it helps transitions between fleets. I was planning to buy a Nexus plus fittings but was interested to know what the future holds!
