Nagra FAX

Weather forecast map receiver and printer for sailing

There are different accounts of the story of the NAGRAFAX.

Stefan Kudelski was an accomplished sailor who was once surprised by a storm in the Mediterranean sea.

At that time, although the weather forecast was broadcast, it seems it was not precise enough to predict local storms, like the one found in the Agean sea around Greece.

Upon his return, Stefan Kudelski designed a FAX that could receive data from weather stations and print an accurate map that allowed sailor to find the local weather conditions and sail to a safe haven if necessary.

The NAGRAFAX was a must for any sailing boat and larger commercial vessels. It was used until very recently.
