The Afterguard HUD is bringing some tech to one sport that people don’t often think about. The system allows sailors to react in perfect time to the varying situations that happen on the seas.

When people think of sailing, they often think it’s burly tattooed men that work on wooden ships, however the modern version of the sport is a bit more refined. By a bit more refined, I mean they have virtual reality goggles that relay information to them as they sail.

The Aftergaurd HUD features various metrics including: speed over ground, wind angle, polar targets and the ever important boat speed. By giving all the information to the sailors, they can make informed decisions well before they need to to ensure smooth sailing.
