The live coverage of the finish in English will also be available on Facebook LIVE beginning around thirty minutes before the finish line is crossed and finishing around two hours later. There will be regular updates on Twitter via our LiveTweets (#VG2016) and Stories on Snapchat and Instagram.
Tracker - positions updated every hour
The 2D and 3D trackers on the official website and app will allow you to monitor the arrival of the first boats, from the moment when the leader enters within the 100 mile radius of Port Olona. Positions will be updated every hour.
