The Clyde Cruising Club Scottish Series 2019 Chooses SafeTrx Flotilla Event

The Clyde Cruising Club and 8 West Consulting, the developers of SafeTrx, the leading maritime non GMDSS public safety system, are pleased to announce that the Scottish Series on May 24th-27th is using SafeTrx Flotilla Event.

Scotland’s premier yacht racing regatta happens every year on the second bank holiday of May in the stunning setting of Tarbert, Loch Fyne, and attracts a large fleet of yachts across a number of classes. The event chair, Rear Commodore Glenn Porter from the Clyde Cruising Club, has selected SafeTrx as the tracking system for the regatta. Glenn said “With over 100 yachts participating in races from Largs and across large parts of Loch Fyne we chose the SafeTrx app to introduce event tracking over the whole event for the first time. This will allow participants to track their races and to relive their race strategy by recording their tracks over the four days of the event using the SafeTrx app. We will publish the tracking site details in the coming days so the public can also watch the progress of the races. The whole team at Clyde Cruising Club is excited to bring this new technology to the Scottish series for racers and spectators.”
