For those of you wondering how the internet connection will be on board I have news that a new system will be installed for the season.

The devices are the Alfa R36N wifi hotspot with a Tube-U 4G Antenna in the mast. See a diagram of the system.

The Device takes a SIM card which will then use the 4G LTE network. The sailing region generally has pretty good internet, but there are no guarantees to have 100% up time. The data limit is high so there is no stress on usage limits.

The only thing to remember is that electricity on board is not for free. there is solar panel charging, and a backup generator, but nevertheless it is not always possible for everybody to be charging their devices at teh same time! We just have to hope for good sunshine
