To have a successful WAVESAILING NATIONALS 2018 in December we need a team of passionate volunteers to help us out even if for just a couple hours on 1 day. So we can manage all our awesome volunteers, a SignUp.com page has been setup so you can register for the times you are able to assist.

The best part of volunteering is that not only will you get to watch some awesome windsurfing, there will be plenty of time for you to get on the water too.

From the interstate sailors we are specifically calling out for judges.

We have been in contact with the SurfComp team and working on a demo over the weekend. Thanks for the heads up. The big challenge now is making sure we have phone coverage for the event.

You should see if you can get hold off a Telstra 4g Go Repeater (www.telstra.com.au/coverage-networks/network-coverage-extension-devices).Either see if any of the providers in Perth would hire one or better still try the Telstra sponsorship team. They sometimes sponsor community events with mobile solutions: www.telstra.com.au/aboutus/community-environment/awards-grants-sponsorship

There is also the option of getting temporary events coverage:
www.telstra.com.au/business-enterprise/solutions/professional-media/mobile-special-events
say.telstra.com.au/customer/general/forms/ENQUIRE-ABOUT-MOBILE-COVERAGE-FOR-YOUR-EVENT
Given it's a national event I would think there is a chance for some sort of sponsorship arrangement.

I have continuous coverage at Corro on an iPhone, as long as I am not behind a car of phone in pocket, then it is say 70%. its line of sight to Gero foreshore once you are a couple of meters up - if a judging scaffold is going in the same place as last time I would be sure of continuous coverage as you will have the gear 3m higher

If not, ask Mathew- tech extraordinaire and Telstra man? If he can't sort it nobody can...

Having never even seen the tool, my best guess is that it doesn't need an Mobile-phone connection... it just needs a data connection. Thus any old wifi / phone-uplink should work. And thus anyone with an external antenna should be able to help
