THE FUTURE OF RACING IS HERE
We believe sailing should be competitive, athletic, and fun. Race setup and teardown shouldn’t be stressful for anyone involved, including sailors, yacht clubs, or sponsors. Mark setting traditionally requires time, resources, and staff in mark boats manually placing and anchoring marks. Especially in deep waters or windy conditions, mark setting takes time that could be spent racing!
That’s why we’ve pioneered the world’s first fully robotic sailing buoy, featuring self-propelling battery powered motor and GPS technology to make placing and repositioning marks a breeze—no anchors or mark boats required.
FAST COURSE SETUP WITH SIMPLE MAP DESIGN
PERFECT PLACEMENT WITH SELF-CORRECTION
QUICK REPOSITIONING VIA REMOTE TECHNOLOGY
SELF PROPELLED BATTERY POWERED MOTOR
NO ANCHOR NEEDED IN DEEP WATER OR HIGH WIND
REDUCES ENVIRONMENTAL DAMAGE RELATED TO COURSE SETTING

“Without MarkSetBot, we would not have been able to run our Inspire program last year. We have 15 minutes to setup a course, run the race, and take it down. With traditional marks, that would not be possible.”
Russell Coutts, CEO, SailGP
In speaking about MarkSetBot’s value outside of SailGP, Coutts commented, “we immediately have decided we need some of those in our youth program in New Zealand, that’s for sure. For anyone that’s been involved with pulling up anchor chains and so-forth, getting to this MarkSetBot, it’s definitely a great solution.”
Ken Read, President, North Sails
Fewer people. Fewer anchor lines. Fewer boats needed. Less fuel. I couldn’t believe how something like this wouldn’t be cost-effective for all yacht clubs around the globe.”
