New technology: volunteers needed for anchorguardian trials Swiss Ocean Tech are looking for yachts to trial their new ‘AnchorGuardian’ product, which is designed to reduce environmental damage by improving anchoring practices. AnchorGuardian monitors the movement and position of a yacht’s anchor and provides underwater intelligence to support the crew while laying and lifting the anchor. It claims to minimise the environmental impact of anchoring by detecting seafloor coverage (eg. corals or seagrass that must be avoided) and identifying the most suitable holding ground, thereby reducing the risk of drag. We already have some yachts interested in trialling, some as early as this summer! If you’d like to find out more, please get in touch here.
