The YB Tracking iPhone/iPad app allows you to follow live race
tracking on your mobile - updated to feature everything we track
including yacht races, car rallies, adventure racing and more.
Information in the race viewer is also controlled by the race
organisers - not YB Tracking. For instance, if a race organiser has
not provided pictures for the teams, then pictures will not appear in
this app or on our web-based viewer.
- See information about the teams in the race
- View live leaderboards
- Review the map, course and wind info (where available)
- Zoom to all teams, leaders, and the course area
- Social media feed with news about the race
- Replay facility, to allow you to scrub backwards and forwards in time
Note: This app requires an internet connection to operate

I won’t complain about the lack of features relative to the “desktop” (web) version. But given the minimal feature set, those features should actually work. Any time the app loses focus, you lose your race tracking. “Error: Sorry there was a problem loading this race - please try again.” Funny because there wasn’t a problem 2 seconds ago when I last had the app open...
Usability is also a bit wonky. It uses the universal symbol of “search” (magnifying glass) as the zoom button. Not sure how many times I’ve hit it hoping it’d search for a boat I’m tracking. Nope, that’s the “Teams” tab. Find your boat then figure out the concentric circle icon means to highlight the boat back on the map.
Get the basics right then we can talk about the features it lacks relative to the website.
Really disappointing when you’re trying to follow a race, but since you’re using IOS device and you are not *allowed* to follow it in a browser instead of having to download this buggy, constantly crashing app that lacks something as simple as being able to search for a racer on the map page. Props for trying to support racing, but give us the option to use the browser app until you improve this app. Miserable experience, especially when there’s no option
Not Ready for Prime Time
Compared to using the Yellowbrick tracking provided online for free by major race organizations, this Yellowbrick app is barely usable. The difference between their online tracking system and this app is striking. Online you can zoom easily, see a map in the background, group racers into a "favorites" group so just the boats you are interested in can be tracked and several other features. All of this is missing from the iOS app. The zoom function does not zoom in close enough to select individual boats racing in close proximity. Even trying a stylus to select individual boats doesn't seem to help. Yes you do see boats racing along a course and yes you can engage a leaderboard. But the ability to do anything else (as in Yellowbrick's online web system) is totally lacking. This app is free (big deal!). Individual race tracking must be purchased per race. I purchased the Newport-Bermuda Race because my son is aboard one of the boats. But I won't be purchasing any more races until this Yellowbrick app gets a thorough upgrade.
