smartmark seems to be a new 'robotic' mark system. It's being used in current ILCA (World) events in Portugal.


Is this the other way to the future of sailboat (in shore) racing?

I haven't really played with this app yet, but you get a lot of the GPS mark setting help with it

sailed with a number of races on different locations where they used the marksetbot. really useful. with smaller boats, it means easily doing 5 starts a day without much waiting between the races.

I’ve been a mark boat where the PRO used Bouyzone, and it’s fantastic. No more directing the mark boats over the radio. The PRO defines the course on his iPad, and each mark boat immediately gets a notification and visual guideline of where to set the mark. Just follow the arrow until the distance drops below 10ft and set the mark. Wind shift 10 degrees, the PRO enters a 10 degree shirt, and all the mark boats get a notification to move. Shorten course, same deal.
