The Yellowbrick Yacht Tracker is a well-proven, self-contained and fully-automatic satellite tracking device. It will accurately report the position of a yacht anywhere on the world’s oceans. It is lightweight, waterproof and built to withstand extreme weather.

Yellowbricks do not need to be connected to the yacht’s power supply and are now available to rent or buy for long-term individual use. Pricing is fully inclusive of Iridium satellite fees and access to Yellowbrick's online tracking software, who provide an online map with every hire which can either be linked to, or embedded within your own site.

Just launched is the Yellowbrick iPhone App enabling users to follow live yacht tracking on their mobile phones (including the numerous races and challenges that Yellowbrick is used for).

The first race to be covered by the Yellowbrick iPhone App is the Atlantic Rally for Cruisers (ARC) 2011, the largest transocean sailing event in the world where over 200 yachts from across the globe are currently racing from Las Palmas in Gran Canaria to Rodney Bay in Saint Lucia, all installed with Yellowbrick 3 trackers on-board.

The Yellowbrick iPhone App allows users to see the current position of competitors on a map, replay historic action and review the live leader board for the event. In addition the app also allows users to keep tabs on the social media feed for the race and view details of particular participants, including photos if provided, ensuring they are completely up to date with the event even when they’re on the go.

Yellowbrick’s iPhone App is completely free to download and can be found by going to the App Store and searching for ‘Yellowbrick’. Within the app users are able to purchase the race they would like to watch with prices from £0.99 to £1.99 depending on the duration and size of the race. However, to celebrate the launch of the app, Yellowbrick is offering the ARC race for free!
