EasyCurrents for Team Brazil

Brazilian Olympic Sailing Team, hosts for Rio 2016 Olympics within Guanabara bay have purchased 4 EasyCurrents units, in order to be updated with reliable real-time currents information.

EasyCurrents will be used as a technological tool, which will provide useful information to be taken into account at decision making times.  Specially at start lines and buoy turns, where currents can take a crucial role, which can make the difference between a first place or a mid-result.

2 Team members, Martine Grael / Kahena Kunze, who have been recently awarded 2014 ISAF’s best sailor of the year, and after having tested them during Santander 2014’s ISAF Worlds, where they became World Champions, will be using them during the49er / 49er FX Intergalactics regatta taking place in ICRJ from November 11th to November 14th.
