More exciting fun with a difference this week!! Tracker II was the Spectator Boat for the VIP crew of supporters from Vodafone and Samsung in their latest promotion.
Team Captain Jimmy Spithill of Oracle, winning boat in the America's World Cup, flew in to Auckland to take part in the recent Vodafone promotion.
The prize winner of the competition won the chance to take part in a demonstration match race with the famous skipper - remotely controlling the Vodafone yacht via Samsung cellphone from a helicopter!!
Earlier in the week the course was checking out for the 4gig coverage needed to ensure the sucess of the operation, of which Mantaray played an integral part ensuring boat to helicopter coverage.
The crew aboard Tracker were able to have great views of the competition having great viewing areas and photo opportunities.
