Sailors, clubs and sailing enthusiasts all over Europe are looking forward to Act 1 of the SAILING Champions League 2016. As technology partners of the SAILING Champions League, SAP and SailTracks realize professional live broadcasting in St. Petersburg.

Alongside the “Race Management App” for the race committee, the “SAP Sailing Analytics” including a live overall ranking, GPS tracking as well as different statistics (for example boat speed, number of manoeuvres, position in relation to the perfect course) will also be used in St. Petersburg. So everyone who cannot attend the event in St. Petersburg is still able to follow the exciting races online. The live broadcasting will be complemented with innovativ viewing angles by cameras on the water, on land and on the boats on Saturday and Sunday.
A team from SailTracks will be taking over the live broadcasting in St. Petersburg for SAP. Different experts will comment on the event. The innovative format of national sailing leagues and the SAILING Champions League are offering SAP an ideal platform to transmit club regattas for the clubs, fans and spectators.
The two events of the SAILING Champions League in Copenhagen (2014) and Porto Cervo (2015) showed what modern live coverage of league events can look like, making the events more attractive for the organisers of the international sailing leagues.
