Pathfinder Sailing was started by two lifelong sailors with a passion for racing.

We started this business to provide racing sailors with an innovative way to improve their on-the-water performance using a Smartphone. The Pathfinder app is a simple, user-friendly tool for extending your existing race instruments to improve situational awareness about your boat’s performance. The service also provides high-fidelity race replay and post-race performance analysis.
