Yacht Tracker links

As part of the ORCV's ongoing continuing improvements, Satellite Yacht Trackers are being used for all major events.  The Trackers obtain a position using the GPS satellites and are set to transmit position updates at an interval that makes sense for the duration of the race.  Yacht positions are then plotted on the race Yacht Tracker map. The Yacht Tracker map will automatically update whenever a new position report is received.

The new ORCV inReach Satellite Trackers from Delorme and the web interface Yacht Tracker map, developed by ORCV Member Grant Dunoon from TryBooking.com, was first tested during the 2015 Melbourne to Stanley yacht race. Further development and improvements to the Yacht Tracker have been made for each event since and are continuing.

For other events, Yachts that have VHF AIS transponders will appear on the internet based AIS traffic sites.
