ABSTRACT: The purpose of this report is to provide information about our senior design project; what it does, how it works, and what it is for. We have designed a system that is not similar to anything currently available on the market that helps beginner sailors to accurately learn how to handle a sailboat. Basically the system, which uses an Arduino UNO™ programmable circuit, takes in all factors that affect the manning of a sailboat and, with the use of LED indicators, provides proper instructions on the proper placement of the main sailboat controls, the tiller and sail. We believe that this project, which has proved ambitious but feasible, has the potential to become an actual consumer product in the near future.
