Changing anything that works is ALWAYS a bad thing, will cause other bad things.
Just ignore the low ZERO readings, and the graph works fine. Can you guys (not addressing Mike) really be so anal as to need to read the absolute LOW's in the graph?

Believe it or not.....
I"ve gotten maybe 15 opinions on the schitzoid graph.
5 girls totally berserked by it.
3 guys complained of it.
7 guys say they noticed it.

I think actually the Berkeley sensor has gotten way more accurate. I had an amazing day today on a 4.2 88ltr board and it read 24-26avg. In the old days this reading would be hopelessly optimistic and I would've been on a 4.8 at least.

Nice job iWS.

There is also an issue with the vane which will not impact the speed readings.


There is also a fundamental issue with the wind at Berkeley which will impact one's ability to sail with anything other than very large slalom gear.
