This project is about the design and development of a proposal to improve the experience during the practice of sailing nautical sports. The objective is to provide a solution to an existing problem in the world of sailing, where in the development of a competition, athletes have difficulty obtaining information relevant to the development of the race. In this way, the project starts with an approach to the problem using the Mind Map tool, to later know the current ethnographic state and its needs, thanks to the interviews and the research of the nautical sector. Later a study of the solutions that are currently in the market and that are direct competition of the product that we are going to develop is realized. Once this study has been carried out, different ideas are presented to develop a valid proposal on which to work. When the best idea has been selected, a dimensional study is carried out taking into account anthropometric measures mentioned within the project, in order to obtain a product with the best possible ergonomics. Next, a selection of materials is developed for each element of the product, taking into account a followed by properties according to the function they perform. To market this product and make it viable in a hypothetical market, we work on a branding process that encompasses both the company and the product. Finally, it considers how the manufacturing process should be, putting, above all, the basic principles of a sustainable and ecological product, as well as the cost of manufacturing the product, with the implications that this would have.
