GPS Tracking at your event
UK Number One for live GPS tracking

Since being appointed European Distributor for TackTracker, SailRacer has tracked over 1,000 races from Sail for Gold (Olympic and Paralympic Classes), World and Internationals (Dragons, 420 and 470s) National Championships (Dragon, J24s, Solos), International Qualifiers (420), and Windsurfers to club racing – plus a few specials like the Volvo Speed Challenge and Little Americas Cup. With our partners we have invested in over 400 GPS trackers and an ongoing development programme, that has seen live buoy by buoy scoring which captured the excitement and drama of the last race at the Dragon Edinburgh Cup, where five boats could have won and the championship going right down to the wire on the last leg. New dashboards specifically for Race and Safety Management are helping event organisers. GPS Tracking is a great way to increase interest and online spectators, from £20 per week per boat. Please contact Brenda Hoult to discuss your requirements.   More…
