Gordon Baird is organizing use of yellowBrick trackers for interested competitors in this years race. The documentation from yellowBrick can be downloaded here, and the cost for a team of 5 will be 50 +VAT or £12 a head (which includes VAT). This will allow friends and family to follow your progress, it will allow the race organisers to plan their approach to the race, and in the event of team problems or issues, will give an automatically updated position. The use of these devices, even if carried, is not compulsory, and specifically runners will not be required to carry these devices.If you wish to book one of these devices for your vessel/team please contact email Gordon.
New rules for this year's race are up; please have a read through, even if you've competed before!
