Race tracking with TRACACE and GeoSIM
Sailing Southwest are providing GPS boat tracking for the entire fleet of between 120 and 130 boats. The TRACACE system uses small GPS trackers on the boats which send position, course and speed and other race metrics to the tracking platform using GeoSIMs GlobalM2MSIM Global Sim Cards.
Each boats position is shown on the TRACACE platform. The display also provides statistics, feedback on tactics and positioning and can also replays previous races. Race management can also monitoring the safety of the crew and boats out in the bay.
You can watch the races as they unfold from the 28th July, by visiting www.tracace.co.uk and clicking on the GP14 World Championships link.
Lottie Miles of Sailing Southwest says “We chose GeoSIM’s GlobalM2MSIM cards because they are ideally suited for GPS tracking due to the multi network roaming capabilities. The SIM cards also offer good value for sending data. We are also able to manage and administer a large number of sim cards easily and efficiently through GeoSIMs online account manager.”
We wish all competitors good luck and fair winds!
