Hi rickmc,

The idea of singlehanded (or shorthanded) sailing is quite appealing to me, so I followed the OSTAR event recently. In their notice of race you find that a radar detection system is required ("A Collision Avoidance Radar Detection System shall be fitted and operated."), as seems to be the case e.g. for the "minis" at the Transat Charente Maritime Bahia (Mini Transat).

So I digged for some useful information and possibly some vendors and found the old "Watchman" device of the LOKATA company which certainly isn't available any more, and then the "C.A.R.D." device of survivalsafety(dot)com. Their website is still alive, but the business possibly isn't.

The only other device I found is made in France, apparently THE singlehanded sailors nation. The model's name is "MER-VEILLE", the company is called ciel-et-marine(dot)com. And sorry, their pages are all in french.

I could ask the OSTAR committee for some more information about vendors... But possibly the sea-me is an alternative, even without directional information?
