RC Tool - Distance and Wind Direction Notice Board

Distance and Wind Direction Notice (Bulletin) board
This is a very convenient notice board for the Race Committee Signal boat.
<at the J/24 Japan National Championship 2010, Nissan Tokai Marina>

We often see the notice board which is combined Magnetic letter pieces with the White board. However there is some difficulty with directions for use. As a bad example, the magnetic letter piece is slanting occasionally or coming loose and falling. And it takes more time to stick and then peel the pieces on the board when setting up the Distance and Wind Direction information.

Img_2168_2 This notice board has the advantage as follows;
1. The letter is very clear and it can been easily seen because the board colour is black and the letter colour is fluorescent yellow.
2. It can been easy to handle because the directions for use is only turning the letter upside down.
3. The letter piece is never lost because of not being peeled.
4. It is easy to make one by carpentering done by amateurs and at a low price.
5. It is possible to display ‘+’ or ‘-’ under Rule 33.
