Raymarine’s Evolution Autopilot Gets The Public Vote

September 2015

Team Raymarine was delighted to accept the Sailing Today award for Gear Innovation (in association with NASA Marine) for the Raymarine Evolution autopilot.

Sam Fortescue, editor of Sailing Today said, "In a strong field of nominees, voters were most impressed by Raymarine’s Evolution autopilot; it offers a step change in automatic helming.” Sailing Today (motto - go further, sail better, be inspired) presented the inaugural awards at the Southampton Boat Show, which runs until Sunday 20 September.

The awards covered 12 broad categories and were voted for by members of the public.
