"The Sailmon App adds another analytical level"

Over the past weekend, the serene waters surrounding the Dutch town of Muiden set the stage for the eagerly anticipated Dutch Championships in the Star Class. As part of the esteemed BIG(3) Series, the event offered captivating races against scenic backdrops. Sailmon was on hand to capture the excitement on the water, providing a unique combination of accurate data and captivating images for the benefit of the organisation, participants, and fans.

Despite being one of the oldest one-design sailboats globally, the Star Class has seamlessly embraced modernity with the introduction of the Sailmon Racing concept. The outcome? The sailing event was orchestrated in a more accessible, visually engaging, and digitally enhanced manner. MAX Mini's were fitted on each boat to meticulously record movements, while the Sailmon App collated all data, transforming it into comprehensive race analyses. The media team, armed with aerial drones, seamlessly integrated data and visuals into the app. Co-organiser Michiel van Dis reflects on this technological workflow with satisfaction.

"Sailmon Racing greatly enhanced the overall experience of the event. It's amazing to see competitors opening their devices as soon as they are off the water to analyse their trip in detail. The Sailmon App adds another analytical level to monitor and review your performance. Without a doubt, it played a big role in the way the fleet keeps improving every race."

The benefits of Sailmon Racing weren't solely enjoyed by the organisation. Participants, representing diverse nationalities and ages, gained invaluable insights into their own and their peers' sailing techniques. MAX Kohlhoff, event winner and Sailmon MAX dealer, expressed his delight with Sailmon's technological contributions:

"It was a very well-organised event. Nice racing on the water! Race Management did a very quick and solid job. No big hassle. The Sailmon MAX Mini was working very well. The replays on the television with data overlay were pretty cool. It was a great experience!"
