"Thank you so much! I have been meaning to write you to let you know that we have loved the SailBot Master. We had a youth invitational for 94 sailors on July 7 that went off great with the dinghy sequence, and then another 2 day regatta with old turn of the century Wianno Seniors (about two dozen 25 foot sailboats with 4 crew) last weekend using the 5 min Rule 26 start. As an iPhone user myself, having the app as the controller is seamless. You have a great product you should be proud of. We'll be sure to promote the device among our Southern Mass sailors and clubs."

Controlled by an App

SailBot is the only automatic sailboat race starting horn that offers custom start sequence editing and modification. Choose from one of the many included ISAF starting sequences, modify them or create your own. The options are limitless.

All software for controlling the horn is contained in the app on your iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch so updates are automatic and your device is always up to date. Say goodbye to hard-wired sequences forever.

Designed with Race Committees in Mind

With no pairing codes it could not be simpler to setup and go. Place the SailBot starter anywhere on your boat away from Race Committee ears, turn it on, open the app and tap "Connect" and you are ready to go!

You can choose from a number of predefined sequences or program your own. Watch this video to get an idea of how simple it really is to have perfect audible sequence signals.
