UPDATE – just cannot drill a hole in the deck ? We have an alternative. 

RaceSafe H2O is a quantum leap forward in several areas of risk management, that have been identified by our Insurers and Marine Transport departments alike, as areas that need to be addressed by the sport to ensure our ability to obtain permits to race, especially in the longer river classics.

RaceSafe H2O provides each participating boat with a remarkable piece of electronic tracking equipment that provides race control with accurate up to the second data on each and every team including:

  • Exactly where they are on the race course;
  • What speed they’re doing at that moment, average speeds and speeds at a specific location;
  • What boats are approaching any other boat from behind and therefore what boats are reaching boats in front of them;
  • Maximum speed for the 60 and 70 MPH classes, where the RaceSafe H20 unit will track the speeds and immediately notify both the boat and race control where 60MPH or 70MPH has been exceeded;
  • Where there is an incident, and a team requires assistance, a pin point rescue position can be provided to course boats and emergency services, with the ability to communicate to the team as to whether they have stopped because of an accident or possibly mechanical failure and in the case of a team’s failure to respond back to Race Control, an alert can be sent to the next boat to take the necessary actions and get the information back to Race Control to initiate the proper response.
