At the 2011 worlds in Denmark we had live tracking for all races, which was very appreciated by friends, family and A-Cat interested sailors all over the world. It generated a lot of hits on the event web page - which is a good parameter to attract sponsors.
But tracking doesn't come for free, it is an extra expense (and work load) for the organizers, and one of the reasons we didn't have that again in Islamorada.
IACA is now looking into other options, as we have to make this more accessible for future event organizers. Part of this work is to evaluate the tracking solutions available on the market.
WE NEED YOUR INPUT!
