ROLEXSYDNEYHOBARTYACHTRACE2015ROLEXSYDNEYHOBARTYACHTRACE2015 over the past 12 months, after its major re-development in 2012, with new map features being added to the Yacht Tracker and a re-structure of the mobile/tablet platform to further deliver user experience on mobile or tablet devices. The race website will also webcast the Seven Network’s live broadcast of the start. Included on the website is the complete list of yachts entered, along with a photograph and description of each boat, a rundown on the crew, and the boat’s past racing record. There’s also archival data including results of the past 70 races since the first in 1945 and the weather they encountered; a summary of line and overall handicap winners of those races; historical reports and statistical information; designers of those 70 line and overall winners; and profiles of some of the race luminaries over the years. You’ll also be able to follow the event on twitter for race updates @RSHYR and via Facebook www. facebook.com/RolexSydneyHobart YACHT TRACKER By far the most visited page of the website is the Yacht Tracker page, which allows viewers to track the entire fleet or a particular boat from start to finish. Yacht Tracker uses a specifically designed tool that calculates the predicted results for each and every boat in the fleet, so you can see each boat’s performance. Each yacht will be fitted with a Yellowbrick tracker that will obtain a position using the GPS satellite network, and then transmit that position back to Yellowbrick HQ using the Iridium satellite network. From there, the data will be transferred to the website, which shows in text and graphics each yacht’s position in the fleet, its place relative to other boats and known geographic features, and the speed currently being achieved through the water, as well as the direction in which the boat is sailing. In addition, the yacht tracker system also shows distance to the finish line and progressive corrected time positions under the IRC, ORCi and PHS handicap divisions. Line honours and progressive corrected times under the handicap categories are updated every 10 minutes. FOLLOWING THE RACE 071 ROLEX/CARLOBORLENGHI The yacht tracker system shows distance to the finish line and progressive corrected positions under the handicap categories.
