A Wind Gauge is a gadget..
Gadgets don't sail boats, people do.
They most often don't have them on small sail boats, and some folks don't even have them on larger ones. Those boats sail fine without them. If your looking for a wind directional indicator, tie a piece of yarn on some of the stays.
I hardly ever look at my wind speed gizmo when I sail.
