Tracking Tips from the NYYC

How to Follow the Competition

Race Tracking

Each yacht is equipped with a YB tracking device, which will enable anyone with a computer, tablet, or smart photo to follow, in real-­‐time, the progress of individual yachts, a single class, or the entire fleet during the Transatlantic Race 2015.

The tracker can be found here: http://yb.tl/transatlantic2015 (it will be active 24 hours before the first start, June 28 at 1400 EDT).

You can also view the tracker on a tablet or smart phone. You must first download the YB Races app, then within the app, add the TR2015 race. There is no charge to follow this race.
