  • The Champions of Champions event was fantastic. The tracking worked perfect. All the sailors were super happy.

    Hans Ramne, Sailing Båstad
  • Our mega event has come to and end and it was a success. Norwegian National Broadcasting watched the transmission and saw how valuable it is to use tracking to make good understandable visualisation of sailing. That was fun. We received a lot of praise for our coverage.

    Truls Rognerud, Sports Coordinator, Oslo seilforening
  • The live and playback during the Lipton was hugely successful, I have had endless posiAve feedback from everone. The playback feature was very interesting as we did this each evening on the big screen in the club, in conjunction with a couple of the top skippers. This was extremely popular.

    John Leslie, Lipton Cup
  • Everything worked out great and people were very happy with the tracking program.

    Lynn M. Lynch, Kite Foil Gold Cup, Race Director St. Francis Yacht Club
  • I thought the tracking was great, really useful for social media updates and our blog, especially with the split times at mark roundings. It was also really great to be able to show in the hospitality tent, there was a lot of interest in that screen!

    Amy Cada, Head of RC44 Media Team
  • Today a sailor of the class "30m2 Schärenkreuzer“ was talking to me about this years Bodensee RUND UM. He was totally enthusiastic about this year’s "brilliant Live Tracking 2015“. It was intuitive, stable and reliable and showed everything that an analytical sailor wants to see. The help function explained everything very well!

    Alexander Gerstner, Bodensee Rund Um, Sponsor and Event Management
  • I was very happy with using the TracTrac system during the Delta Lloyd North Sea Regatta and the Nacra 17 Worlds. I think the system worked very well during both events and we had a lot of people who viewed the tracking. The software is working very well and I was very happy with your support.

    Edwin Lodder, Owner of Sailing Management International
  • You guys did great, very accommodating. It was impressing with how everything arrived and worked! I brought over a guy to run it for me and without any prior knowledge he was able to make it happen and get the system working in about 24 hours. Further, he was able to use your back end tabulations to calculate our king of the downwind competition very easily, so that was nice.

The tracking device
  • How does the device work?

    The tracker used at most events is a small 60-gram device containing GPS, mobile connection and battery. The device will sample the position of the competitor at frequent intervals and send the data to the TracTrac system via the mobile network.

    For events with special requirements we use other types of trackers.

    For events taking place outside mobile coverage we offer satellite-based trackers.
    For events with very high requirements to low latency we offer UHF trackers running on a local radio network.

  • Is the device waterproof?

    The device is IP65 certified (i.e. it is resistant to sprinkles and dust). For optimal protection of the devices it should always be sealed in a waterproof bag provided by TracTrac.

  • What happens if the device looses connection?

    If the tracking device looses the connection to the GSM network it will buffer the data in the internal memory and send them through as soon as the connection is re-established.

  • How long time does the battery last?

    The device has a battery life of 14 hours on the standard configuration. If needed the device can be configured to less frequent sampling and transmission to make the battery last for several days or even longer.
    The device can easily be put to sleep and have the sampling and transmission profile changed remotely, which allows turning the device on several hours or days before the race starts.
