A new tracking facility will enable family and friends to use Facebook to follow their sons, daughters and friends online throughout the EUROSAF Youth Sailing, European Championship in Aarhus, Denmark, which takes place between 4th – 10th August 2012.
The European Sailing Federation (EUROSAF) would like to extend their congratulations to the Irish Sailing Association together with The Royal St George Yacht Club, National Yacht Club and Royal Irish Yacht Club, on successfully organising the Four Star Pizza ISAF Youth Sailing World Championships in Dublin Bay, Ireland, which concluded last Friday.
The emphasis on youth sailing in Europe now switches to Denmark, who host the EUROSAF Youth Sailing European Championship, which commences in Aarhus on Saturday 4th August.
Two weeks prior to the commencement of the event, Sailing Aarhus and EUROSAF are delighted to announce an innovative and cool new facility, which will be incorporated into the championship. This brand new feature will permit sailors competing in the event to spread news about their performance in Aarhus to their family, friends and fellow countrymen, via Facebook – while they are sailing!!
Each boat and sail board will be fitted with a tracking device from TracTrac, and competitors will be issued with links to make it possible for them to connect their personal Facebook Timeline account to the tracking system, thereby enabling their personal performances to be automatically posted to their own Facebook page.
This will give each competitor a wonderful opportunity to keep their families, friends and fellow sailors back home completely up-to-date on their progress throughout the week, live and online. As well as providing a tremendous promotional boost for youth sailing around Europe, this facility should also prove beneficial to youth sailing around the world.
This new feature is a result of the close corporation between Sailing Aarhus, Active Institute, the University of Aarhus and Trac Trac A/S.
