US Sailing has partnered with the company behind the sport’s first robotic marker to help get America’s sailing community back on the water.
Afloat.ie previously reported on the MarkSetBot, an invention by US sailor Kevin Morin that essentially combines a standard race marker with a trolling motor and GPS receiver, allowing it to be set remotely by computer or mobile device.
“The MarkSetBot inherently allows for social distancing,” says the company behind the pioneering product, which also boosts its environmental credentials — eliminating the need for boats to tow out race markers.
MarkSetBot is now offering US Sailing member clubs a 33% discount on a three-month lease for three marker bots. For more about the MarkSetBot robotic marker, see HERE.
