Kiteboarding meets SporTrack GPS  

All athletes were equipped with one SporTrack GPS tracker that send the location and progress every 10 seconds. With this technology the spectators, family members and social media fans were able to follow all the race directly from their smartphone app Racemap. To better understand the Racemap we identify safety boats in red, Iron Kite staff in blue and athletes on white. This provides a better logistics and understanding of everything. Event headquarters where constantly monitoring the map for the safety of everyone.
