bring the world to your local sailing event
What is it?
The Swiftsure Race Tracker is a functional, usable, interactive mapping tool allowing long-distance sailing races to be followed on the internet in real time.
How does it work?
The Race Tracker relies on a feed of positions from GPS transponders placed on each yacht. The information is processed and fed to the Google Maps based viewer.
Can I see it?
To truly appreciate the power of the Race Tracker, you will need to see a live race. Right now you can view one of our past races to get an idea of how the system works.
The Swiftsure Race Tracker is a live, web-based, tracker that allows the public to view real-time positions of yachts in a racing event. Designed to increase the public involvement in the Swiftsure International Yacht Race in Victoria, BC, this tool can be adapted to suite almost any event.
