Tracking The Arctic V: We go behind the scenes with YB Tracking

By Vicky Anscombe

Keeping up with the team when they’re racing around Greenland will be tough - but that’s where YB Tracking comes in.

During the three-day Arctic Circle Race, The Arctic V will be carrying a very special piece of kit that’ll transmit their location every 15 minutes - so you can always keep on top of their progress (just scroll down to see the map). They’ll be carrying a YB3; a yellow and black device that looks a lot like an old-school mobile phone. This very clever tracker will get their GPS position, relay the signal over satellite and add their position to our user-friendly map.

Here are some facts and figures about YB tracking and their adventure-friendly kit:

"It’s very exciting. When the team approached us and said they needed a tracking device, I knew we had exactly what they needed. It’s really easy to follow their progress on the user-friendly map and we’re looking forward to reading their updates! We wish them all the luck in the world and hope that they enjoy their time in Greenland."
