Track the boats in the Transat Jacques Vabre with Ocean Tracking
In the first four hours of the race, positions will be transmitted every minute. The race management will then send positions every 15 minutes.
Off the coast
Offshore positions will be transmitted by Iridium every 15 minutes.
For the last 50 miles of racing, the frequency will be increased to 5 minutes or less if the boats are at very close quarters. As soon as the beacons are connected to the 2G/4G network, the frequency can be every 2 seconds.
