One company that has identified the team’s marketing potential is PredictWind. The team hopes that the PredictWind products and services will give them an edge as they take on some of the world’s best match racing sailors. Offering very accurate forecasts at a much higher resolution than other weather agents, giving hourly predictions in localised areas of up to one square kilometre, the team will use PredictWind to give them a tactical advantage which can be critical in this championship.
MRT tactician, Kyle Langford says:
“The accuracy of PredictWind’s forecasts is going to help us get on top of our competitors. We sail in some fairly obscure locations where the wind changes regularly, and having PredictWind on the team is going to keep us one step ahead of the other teams out there. We couldn’t be happier with PredictWind behind us this year.”
Mirsky Racing Team will compete next at Match Race Germany. Find out more at the Official MRT website.[/cleeng_content]
