Plastimo Contest

   
The Contest® Range

Contest® 101 compass

Sailboats as from 9 metres (30 ft).
When Plastimo invented the double reading compass, it was a major innovation which allowed the yachtsman to follow his course from the cockpit and the cabin. 
The Contest 101 goes a step further : its exclusive mounting possibilities on any bulkhead - whatever the thickness - and its aesthetics allow the Contest 101 to adapt perfectly to today's yachts, both in terms of engineering technique and glamorous design.

The Contest® Range

Mini Contest® compass

Sailboats up to 9 metres (30 ft).

To match the new cockpit designs, Plastimo has revamped the Mini Contest, one of its historic most popular compasses. The latest born in the range, the Mini Contest boasts a more modern look and a new conical card for improved reading comfort.
Card
• Excellent readability whatever the weather conditions and light.
• Conical, highly stable, 81-mm apparent diameter.
• Individually balanced.
• Graduation every 5° and compact figures for easy reading. 

3 lubber lines
For dependable readings even when steering windward.

Watertight construction
• One-piece moulded flange and front dome.
• Viton® diaphragm with extreme expansion and retraction capacity : compensates the fluctuations in fluid volume caused by differences in temperature and atmospheric pressure, thus preventing the formation of bubbles.

Materials
• All parts fully UV-ray treated.
• Scratch resistant dome.

Lighting
12V-bulb integrated in the front flange, spreading the illumination evenly over dome and card, and preventing eye strain and fatigue at night. Easy access to the light bulb from the front of the compass.

Mounting

• Mini Contest 2 is compatible with Mini Contest drilling Ø. 
• Fits any bulkhead thickness : 
- standard thickness (40 mm max)  : the compass is secured with threaded rods
