The weather is getting colder, the days are getting shorter, and we are gearing up for a busy winter in Florida.  But as we prepare for the winter season, we’re reminiscing about some of the awesome events we ran this summer.

So without further ado, here’s a look back at some of our best moments of the summer:

RS Games

MarkSetBot had the privilege of taking the Bots to Weymouth and Portland, England for the 2022 RS Games.  Held every four years, the games bring sailors from across the globe with events for each class within the RS range.

Turns out, MarkSetBots make for big off-the-water fun too.  Check out the video here.

GL52 Summer Series

Hosting four events throughout Northern Michigan this summer, the GL52 Summer Series brought some of the best sailors in the world to Pure Michigan.  Aside from using Bots to build the entire race course, this series took full advantage of the suite of technology MarkSetBot offers, utilizing our wind instrument, native integration with Expedition, and TracTrac connection for data analysis and virtual race viewing.

Chubb Championship

The Bots continued to enjoy time in Michigan at the Chubb U.S. Junior Championship.  Macatawa Bay Yacht Club hosted the weeklong event with over one hundred sailors competing on three different circles. Bots were used for the multihanded championship which was raced in VX Ones.

Safe Harbor Race Weekend

The glitz and glam of Super Yachts met the rough and tough world of one design racing at Newport Shipyard’s Safe Harbor Race Weekend. Over seventy boats, including seven Super Yachts, competed across two divisions on Newport’s Narragansett Bay with nine Bots being used to create the racecourses.

M32 Summer Series

Also making Newport their home this summer was the M32 class.  A long-time user of Bots, the M32s ran four events from June to August.  Running their own Bots throughout their series, the M32s take full advantage of MarkSetBot’s easy-to-use technology to set up and adjust their entire racecourse.

As we turn our attention towards a busy winter season in Florida and across the south, we are excited for everything we were part of this summer and are already looking forward to next summer.  See you on the water!
