A busy year of GPS Tracking at events for SailRacer saw us become the number one provider of GPS tracking for sailing in the UK. We are now pleased to announce the launch of SailTracker - a tracking and virtual log book aimed at individual sailors.
SailTracker gives access to your own live and recorded GPS tracks. You can also view weather and tide data, add notes, photos and videos to build up your own virtual log book. Share your tracks with friends and coaches, who can comment on your performance.
Track and log your sail training, coaching, racing and recreation.
Just switch on and strap the unit to the boat in its waterproof bag. No need to pre-set race times, just log on whenever the unit is transmitting to see live footage. Replay at any time in the future.
The SailTracker replay dashboard creates the perfect location for all your sailing data - tracking, photos, videos, weather reports, results and more
SailTracker allows you to share your position with friends and family, via a secure web page. They keep up with your live progress and can post comments to your SailTracker Dashboard. Now your shore crew can track your progress on the water.
The SailTracker package includes facilities to replay, analyse, share and log your sailing performance data:
You will be provided with a sharing login so that friends and family can watch your progress live on the SailTracker Dashboard . You can also share an individual tracked event, allowing friends to view a replay, your associated notes, photos and videos etc
Add more details to supplement the tracking data and keep a diary of your progress. All data remains on the server for you to access at any time while you are a SailTracker member :
Build your own venue guides and notes.
Using weather feeds from nearby observation points SailTracker can provide the current weather for the tracking location and record wind strengths and directions as part of the tracking replay.
Against each tracking session set up, the weather conditions and tide are recorded to allow you to overlay against replayed tracks. You can also add you own weather data to build up a powerful archive.
See the tide details, including height and times.
Use the SailTracker Dashboard on your smart phone, collect data and see tracks whilst you are out and about. Great for looking up and recording settings in the dinghy park.
If SailRacer are tracking an event you enter, you may be eligible for a lower entry fee for providing your own compatible GPS tracker unit. Event organisers can upgrade to the full TackTracker Regatta package.
The SailTracker unit has a one-touch emergency button which sends an SMS message detailing the unit location (longitude and latitude) to a pre-assigned number. Also included in the message is a web-link to the map of the location at the time of transmission. (Any emergency messages sent are charged at 20p per SMS.)
This unit has been proven across thousands of sailing races, at locations all around the globe. It uses GSM data communications to transmit the live GPS positions to the server once every 60 seconds, this data powering the SailTracker analysis dashboard where the user, and friends and family, can access the precise location in real time and replay the tracking over and over again. Alternative plans include increased frequency of transmissions - please contact us for more information.
industry standard marine charts to show hydrographic features of where you have sailed, eg shallows and deep water channels - useful for building up your venue knowledge.
Friends can add comments to your tracks and upload photos.
SailTracker enables multiple registered users to combine their tracks, collaborate and share comments
Many races allow the use of Black Box GPS (no instrumentation giving live advantage to the user on the water) - check SIs before you race and see where your gains and losses were made
The roaming data plan included is sufficient to cover all but a professional sailor’s monthly sailing time. Increased plans are available at additional monthly cost. The data will track up to 17 days of sailing within a month at 8 hours each day. SailTracker will contact you if you are nearing this limit and agree an upgrade to your plan if required.
The SIM card is not fixed to any one mobile network - it will roam to find the best GSM (2G) network for your location, even changing within your time on the water during any one session. The use of 2G means it is likely to give a more consistent connection than an ordinary mobile phone. The SailTracker and SIM can be used anywhere in mainland Europe without variation to the contract or additional charges.
See every wrong move and badly taken windshift - SailTracker is a great coaching and training tool. Coaches and other sailors can add comments to your tracks, help your improve through virtual coaching.
