The Rolex Middle Sea Race Tracker follows 130+ racing yachts on their 2—6 day race around the islands of Malta, Sicily, Stromboli, Favignana, Pantelleria, and Lampedusa.
The race’s first tracking application was created in 2010 using Flash. For the 50th anniversary of the Rolex Middle Sea Race, they migrated to Cesium, enabling beautiful visualizations for both desktop and mobile users.
Their GPS tracking data is currently provided by YB Tracking Ltd..
Both the original Flash tracking application and the new Cesium tracker, as well as the website and race management back-end, have been built by Sven Neumann under management by MAXCREATE, which also provided designs and styling.
