How to put Bonita on your Desktop

Simply paste, drag or place this link on your desktop or links bar:

If Skipper Mike has whipped the crew in to action and Bonita is at sea and not out of range of shore stations, you'll get to a screen like this:
Click the cross at top right of the info to see more. Use zoom on left side of screen too.

If you're up late (or based in Canada like Trevor our technical wizard), try using this link:

to show Bonita's track so far that day:
There are other OGA50 Round Britain Challenge vessels using the AIS tracking system that you can also follow; to make things easy you can add them to the 'My Fleet' function. Bonify, Cine Mara, Leonora 3 and Annabel J can also be tracked this way and hopefully there will be others to be added soon.
