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.

IMPORTANT: The YB Races app is free to download, but
EACH RACE has an individual price to purchase. Each race is typically
priced at £1.99 / 2.49 euro / $2.99 - please do not leave negative
feedback based on having to buy races. If you wish to watch for free,
please use our web-based viewers.

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.

Key features:

- 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

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.

Waste of time (and money)


I got this app only because of limited computer access during the race I'm following, and I could hardly be more dissatisfied. First, this app crashes often. But worse than that, it hangs up my iPad completely, forcing me to restart every time. To make matters worse, when it actually does run, it offers only the most basic of features. The online Flash-based tracking through Yellowbrick is really impressive and quite rich in features, while the app looks and performs like it was thrown together at the last second by the company's most incompetent programmer.
Some of my particular frustrations are:
- Boat photos don't show up
- Wind speed/direction data constantly "unavailable"
- Difficult to select one individual boat... Can't zoom in enough
- No map on GUI (this thing is ugly!) making it harder to track progress against familiar coastal towns
- Where are the rest of the features!?

Yellowbrick has put as little effort into this app as possible, and it shows. Bottom line: DO NOT GET THIS APP!

I love this app!


The app works great and is an excellent
way to follow the races. Like any app you
have to learn its tricks, but it works like a
charm. I don't understand the criticism
about price. It's a relief to be able to pay
a fair price for an online experience and
have to worry about privacy issues. I wish
my favorite online haunts even gave me
that option. Kudos to the yb team!

N.B. This rating interface is horrible- text
disappears as I type and I keep having to
manually insert "return." I don't recall rating
an app before so I have no idea what it's
going to look like.
