The new official Lendy Cowes Week Competitor App is now available for download from the App Store and Google Play. Every crewmember with an iPhone or Android device can download the App and view their own personal schedule of racing, course information for the day (including distance and bearing to each mark), race announcements, the official wind forecast that the course setters are working to, and the key social events taking place shoreside.

The App is designed to help the whole crew feel more involved in the regatta, and the inclusion of course and bearing data will definitely be welcomed by those currently struggling with a tiny reference chart in a wet day-boat!

The App also provides GPS tracking of each boat while on the water, to assist the race management team in tracking the progress of the classes and making more informed decisions about important aspects such as shortening course in light airs.

The App represents a big technical step forward for the event, and we’re encouraging all crew members with a suitable device to download and use it.

You can find more about the App, how it works and how to get it here.
