The West Lancashire Yacht Club 24 Hour Race, the UK's No.1 dinghy endurance race, will provide live GPS tracking of each competing dinghy this year. WLYC have agreed a joint exclusive sponsorship deal with GJW Direct , Allen Brothers and Precision Yacht Paint, to provide the SailRacer GPS Tracking System.
Throughout the 24 hours competitors, team management, spectators and supporters will be able to follow the progress of all the dinghies online via the event website. It doesn't matter where they are they can follow everyone or just a few select teams. They could watching in the team tent, in the WLYC bar, back at their Sailing Club or even in a restaurant in Hong Kong!
SailRacer GPS tracking Each Dinghy will have a GPS tracker attached, providing a wealth of detailed analytics such as lap times, speeds and VMG. The teams will have a valuable tool allowing a direct comparison across all competitors to help them understand their overall performance, not just their strengths but also where they can improve. A powerful management tool!
For the Race organisers, the GPS tracking system will enable a constant monitor of the positions of all boats, particularly important during the hours of darkness or poor weather.
