Sailing electronics manufacturer B&G has debuted the new B&G Triton Edge sailing processor this week, delivering what it claims is the most advanced processor ever to hit the sailing market.
Triton Edge is billed as the brains behind a sailboat’s electronics and onboard data systems, with ultra-fast processors that deliver an enhanced suite of accurate sailing data to a vessel’s B&G Triton and Nemesis displays, B&G Vulcan or Zeus chartplotters.
The information can also be accessed via webserver, allowing users to upload data recordings to the cloud to be viewed, replayed, and analysed in the B&G Companion App.
“Triton Edge is designed for sailors running a cruising or dual-purpose cruising/racing system and provides the sophistication and expanded information you need to sail faster and make better decisions out on the water without over-complication,” says Tracy Cox, global brand manager for B&G. “It provides sailors and skippers with a wealth of benefits, primarily by expanding on sailing data and enhancing accuracy through improved calibration and management of data sources.”
B&G says its sailing processors have been tried and tested in some of the toughest and most intense sail racing conditions on the planet, including The Ocean Race, Round the Island Race, and SailGP and offshore sailing programs like Boris Hermann’s Team Malizia and 11th Hour Racing and, with the launch of the new Triton Edge, B&G delivers the same kind of performance for cruisers and club racers.

Enhanced sailing data and additional sailing-specific features include advanced start line calculations, advanced true wind data and autocalibration, boat speed calibration and correction, wind correction for heel/trim angle, improving the sailing data displayed to the user and guiding the autopilot. Triton Edge is also said to simplify otherwise complex calibrations through AutoCal calibration routines.
The B&G Companion App gives users the benefit of expanded integration options with modules and sensors, whilst web-based control allows for simplified setup, as well as improved accuracy and calibration of sailing data.
