For the skippers:

YB trackers will be allocated at Liverpool Yacht Club at 17:30 by Mark Thompson.

For those boats just entered in Race 7 (midnight race) please return “deactivated” to Chris Power-Smith (Aurelia) in the IOM

For those entered in Race 8, please retain your tracker, and hand back to Peter Ryan in the NYC after racing.

Those boats just entered in Race 8 can collect trackers from Chris.

It is recommended that trackers are “deactivated” after race 7 and “reactivated” before race 8. If left “activated”, they must be left above deck or the battery will discharge whilst searching for satellites.

To “Activate” - hold the centre button for 1-2 secs, the screen will change to the active working screen as per image

To “Deactivate” - scroll down with bottom key to the legend “deactivate” and press ok button. It will ask you to confirm

It is recommended you “activate” the tracker 1 hour before racing and check your boat name is on-line and showing on the YB app, for the relevant race.

If you do not appear on the YB tracker we will not get a fnish time!
