Anyone Know of a Good Racing Watch?
 
It's possible any good sport watch will do, but does anyone know of a good watch specifically designed for regattas?

There have been some good threads here on this subject, if you do a search. I have a couple of Ronstan racing watches that I have been happy with.

Suunto yachtsman! Time-sail-Baro-comp! Long battery life and reasonable price! Watertight to a point (don't dive with it) a bit complicated till you get the hang....

Sailing World in the Dec issue? the one I got a week or two ago, has an article on 5 different ones. Have not read the whole thing. but might be worth looking up and reading the article!

I personally do not have anything fancy, have a swiss army pendant watch, hangs around the neck, I can glance and see how I am doing or not. Grante it does not have split times, count down etc........but that is what the speed-o on the boat dash is for, ie pt it in clock mode and away we go! more than one way to go about things.

I got one at Costco. Figuring out the seconds in the time mode took some time. I also use it while refereeing squash matches in which we time the intervals between games.

The Suunto Regatta does not have a barometer.

Freestyle Mainer. Big numbers, countdown timer with beeps in the right places. Best of all it is cheap (about $50) which means that if you abuse it too much you won't have to take a loan out for another one. I've had mine for a year and it has worked fine. Night light works well which was big plus in races like the MAC when off watch at night.
