Racegeek


Connecting sailors to their sport

Creating simple, sophisticated and sustainable products

Our Experience

Racegeek was born out of our own frustration when trying to put together a decent electronics package for a Quarter Tonner campaign.

We bring our decades of experience in technology and our passion for the sport of sailing together to develop and design cutting edge products that are simple to use but sophisticated in their ability to help sailors and the sport improve.

Our Philosophy

Racegeek is about creating exceptional products that work out of the box to deliver valuable information in an easy to digest format.

We believe in creating racing tech that is able to address the various needs of the day sailor and the hard core professional world class racegeek... ...without breaking the bank.

"There's just coffee in this, right?"

"It's all bout the pickled dellish"

An engineer and product manager in the tech and mobile industries Ric's introduction to racegeek started with a three bears argument with JC. Too simple, too expensive, just right - if only it existed. And from that argument the d10 was born.
