How can I find a yacht in the fleet ?
Click (or tap for tablets and smartphones) the eye icon beside the name of the yacht. You will see a green tracking line which represents the yacht's route from the start.
How can I choose favourites ?
Click (or tap for tables and smartphones) the heart icon beside the name of the yacht. Your list of favourites can then be found in the drop down selection which is found at the top line of the fleet selection.
I don’t know what the different coloured sails represent
Go to the legend bar under the fleet and race time bars.
Why are there two Wild Oats XI’s shown on the Tracker map ?
For the 2013 through 2016 races, the orange coloured sail represents the position of the race record holder (Wild Oats XI) at the same timepoint in 2012, when it set the record. In 2016, Perpetual LOYAL set a new record.
I want the compare the routes of multiple boats
Choose the boats as favourites, then go to favourites (in the drop down box) and press Toggle Track.
I only want to look at boats within my division
Choose the handicap category you want (IRC, ORCI, PHS, Corinthian), then choose the division you want. The map will automatically populate with those boats competing in the division you have selected.
What's the rhumb line ?
The rhumb line is the most direct course between the start line in Sydney Harbour and the finish line in Hobart.
