Tracking is here to stay, and "real time tracking" is the future of ocean racing.
That's sad and an end to an era.
For the record, on Blue Blazes, the only thing we are tracking you with is our binoculars. No radar, we are only transmitting AIS, not receiving.
I think it's more fun. All night we are asking, who is that? Med man? Yeah! No way man that's expression session! Oh no! Oh oh oh, I know it's Timeshaver! Well, all will be made known in the morning, just keep sailing hard.
If you want to sit at the nav station the whole time and track us, I guess that's your choice.
Also agree with Fan regarding the true tragedy.
