This year Sunsail will present the 80th “Round the Island” race on the cost of South England.
Today we can follow quiet a lot Sunsail Yachts equipped with Class B AIS transponders in the Solent. With the short delay of some seconds (AIS transmission), this is an almost live experience and very attractive to watch.
Take a look yourself within Fleetmon: http://www.fleetmon.com/live_tracking/info
Look into English Channel, Southampton.
(all FM2 beta testers relish the display of this cool race event)
we have done a bit of sorting in our new AIS sources from Africa, Asia and Europe and created new pages for the real time view with Fleetmon:
new regions are now online:

Today we crossed the amount of over 8400 ships in permanent AIS coverage (real time streams), which is also produced by new antennas established over the last week.
The busy port of Kiel right at the end of the Kiel-Kanal, which is connecting North and Baltic Sea, is covered now by Digital-Seas. With the help of Bernward at www.kielmonitor.de we now have a wide view from the tower of a high church, spanning almost 40sm radius.
A bit farer located in the East of Germany is the city of Wolgast. The small town has a larger yard, where cruiseships and military vessels are produced. The Antenna there is catching traffic up to the border to Poland.
Always good to talk about new Stations in the network covering more maritime areas. Over the last weeks we covered the ports of Lisboa in Portugal and closed some reception gaps on the river Weser with an Antenna in Bremen. The Port of Antwerp is now covered with three stations to give you the track of vesel traffic for this long entrance.
A new antenna in Kiel will finish the last bit of the Kiel-Canal between Rendsburg and the Kieler Förde, coming next Weekend. Thanks to Jose, Stevo and Bernward and Bernd from Navkom (please use the links to visit their projects and companies).
We are welcome very much, every attempt to share AIS signals with DS, or open new antenna stations in regions worldwide.
We are working hard on the new database scheme, it will be released next week and brings blasting speed and much better reliability (known issues with overwritten data will be solved). We also extended the reading of the complete AIS set, to be open for Class-B and all other messages. It is fun to follow the SARs objects in real time (much faster then the ordinary ship) :-) We adjusted the start view of the vessel search to reflect the most actual changes in traffic. There is also a new flag for beeing inside the coverage right in the list.
I will fly to Istanbul tomorrow, to have meetings and will give you some impressions over the next days.
Over the last two weeks we opened new AIS stations on Digital-Seas to extend the coverage.
There are now Antennas in Harlingen-NL, Samothraki-GR, Wismar,DE and another part of the river Elbe right above Hamburg,DE connected.
Thanks to Sebastiaan, Ralf, Dennis and the port of Wismar.
We are now working on AIS tracking in Portugal and Spain and yes, a little bit more of the States :-)

The first Ports of our neighbor country Poland are now with Gdańsk and Gdynia covered, which makes us very happy.
Those are quiet busy ports in the Baltic Sea and it’s good to go east with the traffic monitoring.
We merged the traffic inside our Region View:
We have a nice coverage from a sharer in Livorno (thanks for that), without getting a ring or message from him. Since I really would like to include this area on a constant basis, please give me a short reply about the setup.
Saluti a Italia !

With our own AIS station right in the middle of Hamburg it is now possible for us to release the vessel traffic of this important German Port to the Public. Lot of ship-traffic to watch, use our viewer Fleetmon to get a real live impression.
No delays inside , pure joy, 24/7/365.
We did really liked this day a lot, thanks Akira ! Try here: Port of Hamburg
over the last month we opened our server for public sharing and arranged happily to show new areas of AIS coverage. Take a look at the Region-Section of “Fleetmon” to track now also vessels in Houston, Vancouver and Aalborg….

Thanks to Lars Schmidt from Denmark, Oleg Kovalyov from Canada and John Astad from the US.
We’re just preparing a section on the site to explain the process (it’s easy :)
