2010 Live Offshore Tracking
The Rolex Commodores' Cup Offshore Race (Race 5 in the schedule) and the Race round the Isle of Wight (Race 7) are being tracked with OCTrackers. Each boat is supplied with an OCTracker beacon, a self contained unit that transmits the position of the boat at regular intervals using GPS and Iridium (a global satellite phone network). Synchronised position reports are availabe to the public by using the Race Player Application.
Important notice on Fleet Tracking
Sometimes, due to various technical reasons or due to local conditions, a boat's tracker cannot report. The boat will remain in the rankings list with it's position calculated from the last report received.
The non-transmission of a position report should not cause concern; it is not a sign of distress!
Boats competing in the Rolex Commodores' Cup are equipped with various types of communications equipment which can be used to request assistance.
