I'm looking to enter my boat this year, and I'll be buying the app if I do.
I have a 12v socket near the cockpit, so keeping my phone charged while I race, is not a big deal.
Hell, I'll be powering a netbook-chartplotter.
Yep, its likely guys like you and me would want to spring for the App, but I doubt the better racers are gonna' let guys like us track them if they don't have to.
Last years tracking was a debacle anyway - the server went down for scheduled maintenance for about 6 hours during the night.
I hope I'll be able to do the race this year, but I've had a little medical issue and don't know if I'll be recovered well enough to take it on.
