When virtual meets real with the LiveSkipper game on the Route du Rhum – Destination Guadeloupe

Since 2 November, the virtual skippers signed up to LiveSkipper, the official game of the Route du Rhum – Destination Guadeloupe, have been competing tirelessly with the real skippers taking part in the race.

Real and virtual, a close-run race!

Congratulations to Caktus, the virtual winner of the Route du Rhum – Destination Guadeloupe in the Ultime category, who finished the race a little more than 3 hours ahead of the great real performance of Loïc Peyron.

Caktus commented: “Bravo to Loïc Peyron for his great win (but also for having arrived first at buoy 2 in all the virtuals . . . it is normal that we go faster with our GPS at 0.5° spatial resolution, and no coastal effects for us).”  

At 3.00pm, 88 virtual skippers in the Ultime category had already reached Pointe-à-Pitre, out of the more than 50 000 virtual skippers signed up for the Route du Rhum – Destination Guadeloupe.

For the IMOCAs, the race is still in progress! The first virtual arrivals are expected at the end of the week, around Thursday.

“I salute the incredible record of Loïc Peyron and congratulate our player Caktus. The arrival of the real and virtual skippers within a hair’s breadth demonstrates the accuracy of the simulation model and the realism of LiveSkipper,” said Sylvie Clin, Director of BeTomorrow. 

When virtual becomes real

Since the start of the race, LiveSkipper has brought together a good number of diverse and varied initiatives to do with sailing, through the LiveSkipper forums but also in “real life”:

– creation of a grant for teams to find real skippers and crew,
– schoolchildren took part in the race as a learning tool to understand sailing,
– a LiveSkipper put on a video performance about the game, full of humour,
– thirty partners and supporters of Pierrick TOLLEMER, who took part in the real race, decided to take part by signing up to LiveSkipper,
– real encounters between players with a shared passion.

A torrent of air tickets for real transatlantic holidays!

Each day since the start of the race and until 16 November, Air Caraïbes organised LiveSkipper/the winning moment: air tickets offered to players who signed up to LiveSkipper. There are already several happy LiveSkipper winners who will have the chance to fly from Paris to Pointe-à-Pitre.

“I am delighted, it is incredible and I didn’t believe it! When I got the mail asking for my details I found it difficult to believe, but now that you have called me I have really taken it in! (. . .) I came to LiveSkipper on the occasion of the Route du Rhum, but this is not my first virtual crossing. I find that LiveSkipper is user friendly and easy to get used to, and it is really enjoyable,” wrote the first winner, Gaël Hazo

BeTomorrow opens new avenues to the horse racing world with the PMU

For a year now, BeTomorrow has been performing a series of tests of its system for following horse racing, for both harness racing and gallop, for the PMU.

Discover the Point of view of Guillaume Dolbeau, manager of Digital Development and Innovation at the PMU, which appeared in Paris-Turf on 28 August 2014.

A world first
The tests have continued and a new series took place on Friday 22 August during the meeting at La Teste. The global positioning system for horses is giving satisfaction and, after a year, we are in the final phase. It is up to the race companies to choose what use they make of the tool put at their disposal. It is a project that we at the PMU have been carrying out for two years with the race companies, harness racing and gallop, and Equidia. The goal is to enrich the bettor’s experience by providing more information and making races more eventful. In particular it will be possible to provide the position of each horse in real time. Other data will be available such as the speed of each horse, the time between them and their acceleration . . . The goal is also to allow a better understanding of races, especially for newcomers. Someone who watches a race and knows nothing about it may find it difficult to know what is going on. This tool will make it easier to “read” the race.
The name Trakkus is known in the racing world, but here we are in another technology, purely GPS. An antenna is installed and a box allocated to each horse. For the gallop it is on the saddle cloth and for harness racing, they are specially designed number plates. The infrastructure is very light, allowing easy fitting out, and at a lesser cost to the racecourses, while at the same time making it easy to translate to any course. For this technology, it is quite simply a world first. And it is a 100% French company that is in charge of the project. An important argument nowadays. BeTomorrow is a company based in Bordeaux which already covers all the great regattas and the Olympic Games. It is specialised in cutting-edge technologies, in data capture and multimedia representations. It is even possible to imagine a real-time 3D reproduction of the race from the point of view of any of the jockeys or drivers. One possibility among many others.
