The Little Hawk range has long been the Wind Indicator of choice for Club Sailors to Olympic Stars from every corner of the World. The Little Hawk Race and Little Hawk MK2 have been on Bronze, Silver and Gold Winning boats at the last 4 Olympics. A Great Pedigree to follow!!!
With Feedback from Olympic Sailors we have tweaked the formula to bring you the Little Hawk Race and Little Hawk MK2 Podium Editions. The Vane Arm has been redesigned to reduce weight, Increase rigidity, Improve balance and reduce the Centre of Momentum. We have also angled the vane to stop mainsheets catching. The Locking Block is also now captive so that the Vane can not be lost and it keeps it perfectly balanced. (All parts are available as spares)
The Little Hawk Mk2 brings all the benefits of the Little Hawk Mk1 Wind Indicator and mounts it in a secure manor at gooseneck height in front of the mast. Designed for smaller single handed Dinghies, the Little Hawk Mk2 allows quick and accurate reference to wind direction without having to look at the top of the mast. Ideal for upwind and downwind reference. The Little Hawk Mk2 is easily mounted and removed with a secure adjustable bracket. The aluminium support rod can be bent to any required angle, but is easily straightened if accidentally knocked. The complete unit removes for safe storage without any tools. The Little Hawk Mk2 is very popular with Topper and Laser Sailors.

Great windex option rather than a masthead

This wind indicator is exactly what any sailor needs. Really accurate and easy to read, although can get knocked off by other boats, so I recommend tying it on with some string.

These are great, the kids mount them upside down so they don't catch in stuff, worth adding a lanyard too!

Feels more solid than previous incarnations. The sloped edge to the vane is good for seeing off mainsheets (this isn't a feature of the regular Mk 2, making the Podium edition better in my opinion; although lots of sailors simply fit it upside down, the arm doesn't spin as freely in that position). It feels a little precarious without some sort of mechanism to lock the indicator to the mast, so I'd give it 4/5 except I've not seen any wind indicators that have this. If they've all got this flaw then it seems harsh to penalise what is otherwise a robust piece of kit.
