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.

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.

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.

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.

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?
