Tracking the Race
July 8, 2015 06:29 AM
In 2015, you will be able to track each boat in the fleet via satellite tracking. YB Tracking, the leading provider of tracking services for offshore yacht races, equips each racing boat with a tracker that sends a ping about every 10 minutes through a satellite showing its location on the race course. There are two ways to see the live tracking:
From Your Computer
Tracking is available via a link at the top of the Mac homepage, under the "Race Tracking" tab. Ensure that your computer has a relatively recent (2012 or later) browser installed, such as Internet Explorer 10 or later, Google Chrome 23 or later, Firefox 20 or later, or Safari 6 or later. The link for tracking will go live the afternoon of July 9.
From Your Phone or Tablet
For the best experience on your mobile device (iOS or Android), download the free app.
1. Visit the YB Tracking website to download and install the app.
2. "Buy" the 107th CYC Race to Mackinac in the YB Tracking app. There is no cost; Chicago Yacht Club is covering that for our friends and families and fans. The Race will appear in available races on Thursday, July 9.
