How does it work?
We know that you have a lot of things to deal with when organising a yachting event. Our aim is to make the 'tracking' part as simple as possible for you. We provide:
Delivery to you, and collection afterwards
Global service - anywhere in the world
The YB trackers
Our award-winning web-based race viewer
Support before, during, and after your event
Access to our Apple/Android app
Our YB trackers have very large battery capacities, and are designed to work for long durations. When the trackers arrive with you, they just need to be attached to the stern rail of the boat using our quick velcro-mount, and then turned on by pressing a button.
We take it from there, and make sure that the units are working, and help get everything ready for the start of the race.
The YB unit is designed for the harsh realities of the sea - they are waterproof, rugged and reliable. If you choose YB for your event, you're in good hands.
Why choose us?
Use our amazing web-based race viewer to bring your event to the public.
Keep tracking of your participants using easy and quick tools. For safety and security.
Our YB units work anywhere on Earth, and so do we. It doesn't matter where your event is.
Use the race view to replay the race afterwards; data available for at least 3 years.
For certain events, we can speed up and slow down tracking at given areas. Automatic alerts, too.
Using our tracking services gets more people involved, helping get sponsors on-board.

What else do we track?
When you rent or buy our GPS tracking devices, you'll be equipping your competitors with a highly robust and reliable event tracking system.
Records are made and broken every year in the powerboat racing scene, and real-time, accurate location data is essential to verifying results. It's also very exciting for spectators to use our race viewer online or via the YB Races app.
Kayaking / Stand Up Paddle Boarding
We've tracked events like the Muskoka River X for a long time, and more recently, have received a lot of enquiries for SUP race tracking. Our YB3 devices are IP67 rated and transmit data from anywhere in the world, so they're well suited to this.
We've provided GPS tracking devices to rowing races like the Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge for years, and also rent / sell devices to a large number of individual challenges. Whatever your ambition, we can support you.
