The Advantages of MarkSetBot
MarkSetBot robotic sailing buoys are self-propelled and use GPS technology to zero in on a specific location and anchorlessly hold position until you instruct them to move. With a user-friendly mobile interface, easy inflatable assembly, and effortless repositioning, they make precise race management in any condition simple with no complex equipment and fewer volunteers. And, there’s a MarkSetBot solution for every budget.

Positioned for More Race Time
With MarkSetBot robotic sailing buoys, you can set your course faster, easier and more accurately than ever before—no matter the wind, no matter the size of your race committee. If the wind changes direction, Bots can be repositioned with the swipe of a finger, so course changes are handled automatically without a mark boat crew. This leads to more racing, better courses, happy sailors and race committee and a more sustainable sport.
