Starlight the new helming system frees the helm from having to peer down at a compass whilst trying to navigate a steady course sailing at sea.  It is a steering aid designed to make steering a yacht easy by synthesising a star to steer to. 


The display bar is mounted, ideally, at horizon level and maintains a ‘fixed’ point to steer towards.  This means the person steering can see the direction to steer while allowing continuous look-out.  Starlight is perfect for anyone learning to helm, for helming in low visibility and at night when there are no landmarks in sight or to just provide reassurance that you are on course at any point.
