KVH is thrilled to join the 2022 Newport Bermuda Race as Official Connectivity Sponsor. The race starts in our home port of Newport, and we’re happy to build on our long history with the race by making a special offer to race participants.
Working with our partner Intelsat, we’re inviting Captains and crew to stay connected for the duration of the race by bringing the award-winning TracPhone V30 aboard your boat for 30 percent off MSRP. Plus, registered boats competing in this year’s race equipped with KVH TracPhone V30 or TracPhone V3-HTS qualify for free data during the month of June 2022.
To take advantage of this offer, competitors must order their TracPhone V30 by May 31st, but we recommend ordering early to allow plenty of time to arrange installation in advance of the race. To receive the free June data package, contact Alexandra Mouligne at KVH by June 1st.
The TracPhone V30 and V3-HTS systems fully satisfy the race’s safety requirement that each boat be equipped with a satellite telephone or satellite communications system (NBRSR 3.11). More significantly, their broadband capability provides a much more robust, enriched information flow, including access to Gulf Stream charts, satellite images, and all of the forecast models and other weather info available to you ashore.
The benefits of the new TracPhone V30 (released in spring of 2021) include:
- Affordable, unlimited data as fast as 6/2 Mbps (down/up)
- Single-cable installation, DC-powered
- Lightweight (10.6 Kg/23.4 lbs), small diameter (37cm/14.5″) antenna
- Prioritized VoIP calls to land or mobile, only $0.59/minute worldwide
- Flexible month-to-month contract terms with unlimited plan changes and suspensions prorated monthly
- Professional installation by multiple Newport-region, factory-certified installers (see list)
No competing product for race-sized offshore sailboats can match the speed of the V30 or the flexibility of data plans (see comparison).
KVH wishes all competitors a great race! To stay connected, check out the KVH TracPhone V30 system now.
