SinC Indie Marine Smarttune Sensor 400Canadian distributor, Indie Marine announces the new products and upgrades from Cyclops Marine with their world leading load sensors.

For 2023, Cyclops is adding two new Smarttune load sensor to their line-up, a ¾” and soon the 1” turnbuckle with Bluetooth load sensors built in. These new sizes allow larger boats and Catamarans to take advantage of the performance and safety benefits from using Cyclops load sensors. In addition, Cyclops has been working hard on their software and now most of the load sensors are faster (more measurements per second) and more efficient with battery usage, so much so that many of their load sensors will maintain the batteries for up to 16 months in sleep mode or 80 days of continuous use before needing to be charged up again.

These improvements demonstrate that the Cyclops Marine R&D program is fired up as they continue to produce outstanding marine load sensors. To learn more about Cyclops Marine load sensors visit to find a dealer or installer near you.



The European portion of SailGP Season 4 got underway this weekend in Saint-Tropez, France. Having hit record breaking speeds last year on the Côte d’Azur, Phil Robertson and the Canadians were looking forward to this weekend of racing, but things did not turn out as hoped. A penalty in the pre-start of race one was a precursor of what was to come, and it proved difficult for the team to recover.

A collision with Spain early on in race one set the team back and translated into eight penalty points for the event and an additional four penalty points for the season.
