In-Port & Leg Start RACE AREA PROTECTION
Volvo Ocean Race uses Guardian technology to make In-Port races and Leg starts a lot safer for spectator boats.
Guardian’s Protect solution was used to establish a no navigation zone for spectator boats around the course.
As a result spectator and official vessels could see their positions relative to the protection zone on their navigation displays.
In case vessels stray into the zone, alert messages are sent proactively directly to the vessel’s on-board electronic display to keep off the course.
