Making viewers happy CASE, Volvo Youth Sailing, ISAF World Championship, Aarhus DK, 2008 Debbie McNeill 08:26 This is so awesome to watch, I have never seen anything like this before. It has apparently been tried in South Africa on keel boats, but never on dinghies. It is so exciting and makes you feel part of the regatta. My son does not seem so far from home he is only a click away. The replays are a very good training tool as it is a bird eye view, which adds a new perspective to teaching. Excellent allround. Well done Kevin Robertson 11:01 This is an amazing site. The only issue I have is that I stay up all night watching the racing.It is the best thing to happen to sailing since NZ won the Americas cup. My wife is away at the moment so I can sit in bed and watch all the races. If she was home I would have to be a good boy go to sleep and watch the replays in the morning which is never as good as watching live. Well done .
Making more viewers happy Andre 13:04 I must admit this site is truly fantastic. The simple yet completely adequate graphics and intuitive interface are superb. I am a laser coach and this post race information would be hugely valuable to analyse the tactical options taken. Fredrik Strange 20:37 I'm watching the races on a daily basis from a Mark Boat, - I really think that this tracking solution is VERY interesting. Hariet 05:46 I LOVE IT. Zoom in, speed up, slow down replay... a start gun signal would be a great addition. Great for the folks at home to see the action as it happens. Beats waiting for the results to be posted. Excellent training tool.
