    Tracker Details

    Looking at the new tracker. Wondering the details on reporting times and display times? The boats don't update that often right now. Can't see Elizabeth Ann and a few others.

    Isn't it cool

    Where else do you get match ups like this? It comes down to sailing the boat, whatever it is, as fast as possible. And you don't have to be a millionaire.
