Volvo Ocean Race

We have been pleased to see that the Volvo Ocean Race boats are fully equipped with the latest technology. This year they incorporate the satellite antennas from Thrane&Thrane, branded Sailor. No doubt these are superb pieces of technology. We have installed several already and they are tremendously robust. Now they will be used to broadcast all the evolution of the race.

We are also pleased to see the wide adoption of True Heading AIS transponder. Shortly we hope to receive the correspondent MMSIs of these vessels so we can follow them along the coast.

In any case, their official site will provide plenty of data. We expect to see soon the latitude and longitude and also include it in our maps.
