We love getting the word out about the future of racing, but we need your help. We’ve created some guidelines to help you use our brand and assets, including our logo, content and trademarks without having to negotiate legal agreements for each use.

About Us

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.

Our Mission

To have sailors spend more time racing, by solving course setting problems and reducing setup time in sailing and watersport events worldwide.

In the News

World Sailing Logo

“The world’s first robotic sailboat racing mark, it is an innovation which not only makes the task of laying out a racecourse quicker and easier, but is also far less intrusive to the environment. MarkSetBot is fully electric and can run an entire day on a single charge, reducing the need for fossil fuel-burning power boats that are typically required to set a racecourse. As a result, the number of volunteers required to deliver an event is reduced, and seabed destructive anchors are eliminated.”

World Sailing Logo

“The Storm Trysail Club will be utilizing automated mark technology to set courses in the 29th Storm Trysail Block Island Race Week presented by Margaritaville. This will reduce the number of volunteers usually needed by the race committee by about half, saving the Club money on volunteer expenses, reducing the environmental impact footprint, and allowing for more socially-distanced race management.”

SailGP logo

“SailGP Inspire is supported by four founding partners – boat suppliers RS Sailing and WASZP, technical clothing provider Rooster and robotic mark producer MarkSetBot. The revolutionary and environmentally friendly MarkSetBots will be used to set on-water courses for the programme.”
