Frequently asked TRACKING questions


How can I find a yacht in the fleet ?

Click (or tap for tablets and smartphones) the eye icon beside the name of the yacht. You will see a green tracking line which represents the yacht’s route from the start.

How can I choose favourites ?

Click (or tap for tables and smartphones) the heart icon beside the name of the yacht. Your list of favourites can then be found in the drop down selection which is found at the top line of the fleet selection.

I want to compare the routes of multiple boats

Choose the boats as favourites, then go to favourites (in the drop down box) and press Toggle Track.

Can I choose a particular race time?

Yes. Under the bar “Race Time” select the day, hour and minute (in 10 minute increments) and press “Show Earlier Time”. That will then show the position of each boat as at that time. To revert to current race time for the current year press “Show Latest Time”.

I only want to look at boats within one category or division

Choose the handicap category you want, then choose the division you want (or “All” if you want to see all the boats in the category). The map will automatically populate with those boats competing in the category and division you have selected.

What’s the rhumb line ?

The rhumb line is the most direct course between the start line in Table Bay, Cape Town and the finish line in Rio.

I don’t know what the different coloured sails represent

Go to the Legend bar under the Fleet and Race Time bars.
