cxThe Sailmon Max

Dave Love, president of the 1720 class, commented after the event; 'The 1720 Sportsboat Class were delighted with Sailmon at our 2023 Nationals. There was superb viewing in the clubhouse after sailing, and created real focal point for all crew to chat about the day's racing. It also helped friends, family, and the wider 1720 fleet keep involved in the racing. We used a lot of the data on the speeds of the relative boats as prizes within the fleet, which made for fun sailing. We'll be using this service again in 2024.' and Sailmon, can provide different packages and can tailor this to the requirements of each class.

Kenny Rumball gives his idea of how it can work for each class, ‘There is already a lot of work for organisers of sailing events and also classes to consider when running and regional or national event. Allow us to take the work out of it for you and let us do the job of enhancing your sailing event with top-class tracking. All we need is booking 6 months in advance with an anticipated number of boats. All we need after that is an entry list…. We can provide all the other ancillaries, drones, support RIBs and extra features as required.’

Join the revolution and put your class on par with some of the major international classes and names out there, including Melges 32s, SB20s, RS21s, British Sailing Team, J70, Cowes Week, Cape 31s, Nacra 17, the list goes on and on!

With some commitment and pre-planning we can be fully prepared and set up for and epic 2024 of live tracking and integrated video analytics for all sailing in Ireland!
