RACEQS FOR 2020 BARTERCARD SAIL PARADISE
SOUTHPORT YACHT CLUB is proudly supporting the free yacht race tracking service of RaceQS for the Bartercard Sail Paradise Regatta. We have set up a broadcasting regatta site for members, family and friends to watch all the action on their computers wherever they are.
For your yacht to be visible on the regatta tracking, all you need is a smart phone and the FREE RaceQS app which is downloadable from the App store or Google play. The app downloads in under a minute, and registration is NOT required.
Once you have the app, all you need to do is push one button to start recording, and join the race replay.
The RaceQS app uses 1/2mb of data per hour while live streaming, however if you don’t want your tracks to be live you can just record and upload to the regatta site when you are back on land and near Wi-Fi. This upload happens automatically as all boats sailing in the vicinity of the race course and recording their tracks are automatically added to the live race replay.
RaceQS has a great feature so that you don’t have to worry about pushing a button on your phone when you are in a start sequence – use the Preset Start function so you can set and forget.
The bottom line is you don’t need phone or internet coverage for regatta tracking, although you need it for live broadcast. You don’t need to start and stop the app between races unless you want to save battery life. And don’t worry the app wont track you home. If you forget to turn it off at the end of the day there is a failsafe that will shut off tracking one you reach a certain speed in your car.
If you want more information, please head to the website or watch some tutorials on YouTube. Hope to see your tracks during 2020 Bartercard Sail Paradise.
